Thanks to the efforts of many generous donors, the Lions Club Brussels-Charlemagne managed to raise 14.000 €; the funds will be used to refurbish the shelter’s kitchen and sanitary areas.

This noble initiative has been placed under the patronage of the Ambassadors of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Republic of Austria and Switzerland, as well as the Prime Minister of the German-speaking Community in Belgium.
