Main aim of the charity
Provide hot meals, clothes, sleeping bags, shoes, medication, shelter for homeless, refugees and asylumseekers.
How the employee got involved and why
I find it really important to be able to help people, in any way possible. I started looking for ways to help and give back, and so I came into contact with this local organisation that is offering help to refugees, homeless people and asylumseekers in the Maximiliaanparc in Brussels.
What work does the employee do for charity?
I am the secretary of the organisation and look for sponsoring, financial help and gifts. I also help out in the field: handing people in need the materials & food they need.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
With the extra funds, we will be able to increase the number of people we can help out. Offer more support and guidance. But also afford new equipment for the team to work with.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
It would be a great honour for me that I would be able to hand over this generous gift to the organisation. Since I have taken up the task to raise funds, winning this big amount of money would be the cherry on the cake.
