Our response in Belgium to the new coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is the largest ever in the country. Teams are working in nursing homes and providing medical care to homeless people with COVID-19.
Our work with refugees and asylum seekers involves providing mental health screening, counselling and psychoeducation in three reception centres and a number of individual housing projects in Charleroi and Roeselare.
Together with a number of other organisations, we set up a ‘humanitarian hub’ at the Gare du Nord, near Maximilian Park, in Brussels. Here, our psychologists offer counselling and mental health support as part of a complete package of services for migrants and refugees in transit.
