OBSG – Food support center for international students without scholarship

Thanks to Stijn Raemdonck

A donation of € 2.500 + € 500 material aid

For 50 years, OBSG has been committed to the reception, accommodation, assistance and guidance of students, PhD students and interns from partner countries of the Belgian Development Cooperation.

Many students from developing countries come to Belgium with no or only a small scholarship. They provide for themselves with an income from a student job. Because of the Covid 19 crisis, they have lost that vital job.

OBSG has taken action to help these vulnerable students. With the help of the East Flanders Food Bank, the current food support center at OBSG was expanded and is now open to all international students in need. The financial and material support of the Alpro Social Fund for this food distribution was very welcome.
