In 2021 there are still 5,000 homeless people in Brussels. In Liège more than 500 people are roaming the streets every day.
- 66% of these men and women have mental health problems.
- 75% suffer from chronical physical ailments.
- 85% admit being addicted.
Behind these statistics lurks a general societal problem which requires urgent action. Politicians, citizens and organizations must work together to defeat this plague.
Contrary to what’s often thought, nobody chooses voluntarily for a life on the street. Getting out of it requires a fight against many obstacles.
Because every human being has a right to a dignified existence and a roof over their head, Street Nurses want to believe that it is possible to root out homelessness.
During the 15 years of our existence we helped some 170 people getting a new home. Much remains to be done. High-quality global assistance can make all the difference.
Support our actions and so help us realize this change.
