We are ending homelessness in our community…

You can be part of the solution

Welcome to Mesopotamia

We help ordinary people facing extraordinary adversity.

Mesopotamia is a UK-registered charity that works to provide relief from poverty and hardship worldwide. We aim to support the vulnerable and allow them to rebuild their lives with dignity. Since our inception in 2015, we have fed and clothed thousands, provided access to medical care, and helped vulnerable refugees in France, Greece and Turkey. While we have several projects abroad, we also provide support to many individuals here in the UK. Our goal is to assist those in need, feed those who are hungry, and clothe those who are cold.
​​​​​​​
We believe the aid we offer should be available to all. This is why we strive to support those in hard-to-reach areas. From refugee camps in war zones to shelters in our local community, we offer assistance to individuals in need. We provide financial, emotional and psychological support for refugees, ex-servicemen, the young, the elderly, the hungry and the homeless. Our team has in-depth knowledge and connections in the areas we serve. This helps to ensure that resources are delivered to those who need them most.

Mesopotamia have joined Twitter – January 2021 – to help spread the word. Click to see our posts and follow us and please RT our posts to your contacts.

Mesopotamia have had to think outside of the box to in order to raise funds to continue our vital work during the current lockdown.  

Rachel Miller, who set up the charity in 2015 said “we are always looking for ways to raise money to fund our foodbank and the idea for an auction came to me when I was talking to my team about Valentines Day and what we could do for our customers this year.  As our charity shop is currently closed, I thought this would be an inventive way of selling some of our most interesting items, as well as raising awareness about Mesopotamia and the work we do in the local community”. 

Starting on 4th February, the charity will be selling over 100 items on eBay, with the auction concluding on Valentines Day.  A genuine Burberry gentleman’s coat, a bowler hat from Christys’ London, a Radley handbag, a Karen Millen dress and a Thunderbirds Tracey Island playset are just a few of the lots on offer.  The auction will feature some real collectors items and with bids starting from just £1.99, this is an amazing opportunity for people to pick up a bargain.

Rachel said “we are hoping that this auction will get lots of interest.  If you’re looking for an unusual Valentines gift and want to help people in need at the same time, it is definitely one to check out.  We want to get as many people involved as possible, so as well as the high-end items, we will also have plenty of lower-priced lots on offer, giving the chance for everyone to join in and grab something special”.
