About

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.

Charity Number: 1167781

What We Do

We have recently partnered with VISAV Ltd and have successfully applied for local council funding to enable us to build a food store for our food bank.

We provide food to the hungry. During the pandemic our focus has been creating food parcels for the over-70s who cannot leave their homes, or who have simply run out of food.

We sell pre-loved clothing and household items in our charity shop to raise money to support those in need. But we also gift these items to those who are struggling.

Who Supports Us?


Who is Rachel Miller and what is her story?

I am Rachel Miller, a mum of three, who lives in Nottingham.

Since 2012, I have dedicated my time to supporting those escaping the horrors of The Syrian War and various regimes and dictatorships around the World. I have been involved in helping many people who were fleeing persecution and genocide. Some of them are looking for a better life for themselves and their families, while others are simply trying to survive.

My story started in 2014 when I wandered into a refugee camp in The South East of Turkey. I had no clue what or who would greet me and I had no idea of what that visit would prompt me to do. Click to read more.

I’ve heard a lot about your organisation and how you have done great things during lockdown.  

Cllr Sally Longford, Deputy Leader

VISAV Ltd

We were supporting the Sherwood Food Exchange and receiving requests from the public to deliver food, which was not within our remit. In trying to pass on the requests I found all routes to solve requests for help from the public ended with Mesopotamia. We are now delighted to be supporting Mesopotamia financially and practically including building a new website and offering free monthly web hosting.

Mesopotamia are among the support services who have responded to increased pressure during coronavirus. I fully appreciate how vital the services have been and know that yourself and your team have really gone the extra mile during covid-19.
