Nearly two weeks after unprecedented rains have hit several regions across Europe, Belgium is slowly recovering and rebuilding what has been devastated. In this very difficult and painful time, Locala’s thoughts and prayers are with the families of those victims and all in Belgium who have been affected by this catastrophe.
At Locala, we want to do our bit to support the Belgian community and help those people who have been struck by the floods get back on their feet. We want to leverage our technology and capabilities and use the power of advertising as a force for good. Advertising does not only sell, it can also help in times of need. This is why we’re partnering with the Belgian Red Cross to broadcast a nationwide advertising campaign to collect donations – pro bono.
There is a great need for financial support to allow humanitarian organizations in the field to work quickly and efficiently to save lives, get everyone to safety and begin cleaning up and removing debris. Every little bit counts, and if we all stand together, we can make this situation a little easier for the people who are now faced with the challenge of rebuilding their whole lives after having lost everything. Together, we can make a difference.
People who want to give financial help can also do so on the account number BE70 0000 0000 2525.
Special Red Cross psychosocial support volunteers can be reached at 105 to help the people who have suffered from this traumatic episode, both financially and psychologically.
The Red Cross continues to intensify its actions and has set up food trucks throughout the country to address the needs of those affected.
