BENEFICIARY NGO: BXL REFUGEES
Who are they?
Bxl Refugees works on giving back dignity to refugees on their way to another country:
- A place to sleep
Increase donations to meet temporary refugees’ basic needs such as food, clothes and toiletries, in particular:
- suitable donations, as 70% of the current donations do not meet the real needs,
- all year long, not only in winter,
- by leveraging volunteers support through optimal management and communication.
