Samusocial at Gulledelle is a center that offers shelter for over 200 residents, most of whom are large families or single mothers with children. We currently have 3 different weekly projects available from Monday to Thursday.
STC is passionate about developing people, not just meeting needs. We want to help people learn! Reading can give energy, strength and skills, while helping people avoid boredom and depression. This could be particularly meaningful for homeless people and refugees who may encounter difficulties in having access to books.
Honeysuckle is a shelter for women in crisis. Join us on Tuesday evenings from 20:00 to 21:30. This project encourages women to spend time together, after their children are in bed. We hope to offer strength through friendship, both with those we serve and with our volunteers.
Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening from 18:30 to 19:30 you can help serve dinner at Little Sisters of the Poor, an inspiring order of nuns who care for 100 elderly people in the Marolles. On Saturday and Sunday morning from 8.30-10am you can come to help make sandwiches.
Every morning, bright (or dark) and early, asylum seekers line up outside the World Trade Center to apply for asylum. Our team serves breakfast to refugees every Monday and Tuesday morning from 6:30-8:30, rain (or snow) or shine. Considering all that they have been through, getting up a little early to greet them with breakfast and a smile is a very small sacrifice.
We offer the opportunity to lead conversation tables in English (Tuesday) or Dutch (Thursday) on weekly project. The volunteers will work with teenagers from 12 to 20 years old, gathered into small groups, from 5 to 10 students. This project offers volunteers a truly unique teaching experience.
We go every Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 14.30 to 16.00 to serve tea and coffee to patients in three geriatric units in Brugmann Hospital, Schaerbeek. The main purpose is to have contact with the elderly patients and to talk with them, many of whom do not get visits from their families.
Please join us every Wednesday from 19:30 to 21:00. We meet outside the St. Catherine Metro Station at 19:20 and then go to Foyer Selah together. Foyer Selah is a small asylum seeker’s residence which has a family feel to it. We serve the residents by playing board games and interacting with them socially.
Every Wednesday and Friday mornings there is a team helping with the Rafaël food bank, sorting and packing food bags for families in need in the housing complex as well as for other families in need in the area.
COLLECTMET is a project run by AlimentAB and we at Serve the City are partnering with them. The project involves collecting unsold fruit and vegetables at the Abattoir market in Anderlecht and redistributing them at COLLECTMET's sorting point to people in need and associations working in the social sector.
