Food, clothing or housing: the municipalities of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre and Woluwe-Saint-Lambert are organising a support cause for civilians affected by the humanitarian catastrophe of the war in Ukraine. Residents of Brussels from committed municipalities are invited to join the momentum of solidarity.
More specifically, the commune of Woluwe-Saint -Pierre wants to harvest. While it is already collaborating with a local butcher, the municipality in the south of Brussels wishes to send these basic necessities directly to the Ukrainian border.
According to a report by BX1 News, donations can be dropped off directly at the Rudy butcher’s shop, rue du Duc 33, 1150 Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, every day of the week, during the opening hours of the butcher’s shop. Here is the contact number: 02/770.05.95 .
Woluweans who wish can also provide accommodation, whether it is a room, a studio or an apartment, in order to accommodate one or more people. To do this, they can go to the municipality’s website and fill out an aid proposal form .
The accommodation will then be offered to Ukrainian citizens who register with the foreigners’ service of the municipality. In addition, all administrative procedures will be free. A temporary reception area will be made available to them while they are in contact with the locals.
For more information or for additional proposals, Woluweans can dial 0800/35.190, send an email to [email protected] or consult the site https://www.woluwe1150.be/ukraine.
The town hall of Woluwe-Saint-Lambert is transformed into a warehouse. The municipality invites its inhabitants who wish to donate new medical equipment or medicines. The town hall is located at avenue Paul Hymans, 2.
Like the neighbouring town, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert will launch a platform on its website ( www.woluwe1200.be ) where Woluweans can register for their eligibility of hosting war refugees.
