With brew in hand, appreciative residents watch the action. 1:06.

All this activity is needed to provide the bare essentials for 6,000 people.

After a long day receiving help, the residents show their appreciation.

Lied to by the people traffickers and robbed of their savings, desperate migrants have been led into a morass. They need windows or a transparent wall in those tiny houses or cabin fever's going to drive them crazy.

I'm not sure about your slant on the refugees here as it is not the way I look at it, but your post was good education.

Those people helping them to this degree is well honourable. It made me feel like a right lazy arse. How kind they are to got to all that trouble building those shelters.

If I was one of those refugees I would be so thankful. For that reason I expect I would be one of those who does not try to get to England. I would want to cause minimal fuss and would have only been too grateful if France had taken me in from the cold.

What's with the rock throwing and seeming lack of helping by the residents? Of course those two things could be taken out of context, so I'm not going to put much stock in those actions (or lack of action, as half of the case may be).

But as for the shelters, I've wanted to do something like for a while for a homeless guy that lives outside of my neighborhood in some woods, but I think city codes prohibit that, plus there's not really a place to put it that would be acceptable by the city. It kinda sucks, really.

Something similar even to what this guy did...nothing huge, but just something.

Or this:

That's lovely. I love true human compassion. I would show it anyone if I possibly could. They only have to ask. As long as they do not endanger me or abuse me, I am an open door to anyone who will have core human respect.
