By donating, you contribute towards helping a homeless person who has been living in the streets for a long time.
This is a long and complicated process because these are extremely vulnerable members of the population, with a variety of social and health problems.
On the way, there are a number of meetings with our teams in order to build up trust, work on their hygiene and health issues and motivate them to find housing. At the same time, we work with the patient, taking the necessary medical and administrative steps. This helps them establish any rights to access housing, and aims to ensure that they will have sufficient means for this to be sustainable.
Helping someone off the streets takes, on average, 18 months.
No matter the amount, your contribution truly matters. Just to give you an idea:
- 7€ you provide a box of disinfectant wipes
- 40€ you provide the equipment needed for a week
- 200€ you provide for the walkabout of a team of two people - and meetings with 4-6 homeless people
You can donate via a bank transfer to Street nurses’ account:
IBAN: BE91 0014 6955 7676 – BIC : GEBABEBB.
Write your e-mail in the « communication » field if you wish to receive the declaration for your taxes by electronic means.
Monthly donation for a one-year period
- 11,5€ you provide meals and drinks for 5 patients
- 23,5€ you provide the professional equipment (backpack, clothing) of a worker in the field
- 67€ you provide the moving-in costs for a patient
DECLARATION FOR TAXES
If the total amount of your donations is in excess of €40 per year, you will receive a tax declaration, which will allow you to deduct this amount from your taxes.
In this way, a donation of €40 only costs you €22 (reduction of 45%).
If you have questions about the reduction in taxes for donations, please consult this page: http://finances.belgium.be/fr/particuliers/avantages_fiscaux/dons.
