We have received a lot of requests and questions about how we can help the Ukrainian refugees that are coming into Belgium. We will be partnering with centers in Brussels and Antwerp to provide items to those coming in.
The latest information that we have received is that Belgium is planning to receive up to 300,000 men, women and children! Some of those that have come recently are arriving with nothing more than the clothes on their backs and have babies that are only a few days old.
Below is a list of items that have been requested by the shelters and facilities that we have been in contact with.
- Shower Gel for Adults & Babies
- Shampoo & Conditioner
- Toothbrushes for Adults & Children
- Combs and Brushes
- Wash clothes
- Q-Tips and Cotton Balls
- Nail Clippers
- Disposable razors
- Underwear (new) for Men and Women (all sizes XS - XL)
- Underwear (new) for boys and girls
- Socks for men, women and children
- Sanitary pads and panty liners
- Breast pads for nursing
- Pampers (all sizes) and wet wipes
- Baby balm and butt cream
