Yesterday, a group of our volunteers travelled to Brussels for our weekly distribution. They distributed over 300 packs of Ramadan essentials including dates, water, juice, fish, nuts, soup, biscuits, cereal bars, and warm jumpers. Several dozens of sleeping bags were also distributed to those who are sleeping rough in the city.
As explained last week, we also team up with Calais Refugee Aid, who provided a hot meal to hundreds of people yesterday evening. This trip, Calais Refugee Aid also brought donated children’s toys, with which our team set up a playroom for some of the children.
A young girl asked one of our team leaders, “is this only for today?” and when she said “no, this is for all of you to keep,” the girl was overwhelmed with joy, blurted “for me??” and rushed to get acquainted with her new toys. Moments like these are what make your support and donations so invaluable. We thank you!
