The Citizens’ Platform Supporting Refugees is first and foremost a citizen’s initiative.
As such it gets no state support and relies exclusively on volunteering as well as on citizens’generosity and solidarity, yours included !
You can support the Platform and help refugees through donation.
Your solidarity can help improve the living conditions of refugees on a daily basis and we are really grateful to you for your gesture.
Do you donate on behalf of a company, do you want to donate in your name or do you want to volunteer to help the platform operate ?
Then contact our team at : email@example.com
You can also support us by donating money on the bank account BE04 5230 8077 7231 avec la mention with the communication “soutien aux réfugiés”/ “support to refugees” – or mention a specific action you wish to support in particular (sheltering, sleeping bags, Maximilien school, etc)
The owner of the bank account is the « ASBL Plateforme Citoyenne de Soutien aux Réfugiés » and the BIC Code is TRIOBEBB.
