Leading up to 17 October 2021, the Brussels-based charity Community Help Service (CHS) are inviting friends and supporters to walk 50 km in celebration of CHS’s 50th anniversary and raise money to support CHS’s valuable work.
Walkers will be asked to gather pledges for each km that they walk and on Sunday 17 October all will meet up to walk either 5km or 10km (the choice is yours) from the CHS offices in Avenue des Phalènes through the Bois de la Cambre to complete the challenge.
After this final exertion, all are invited for refreshments afterwards at CHS HQ, plus a visit to our next door neighbour's fascinating garden that featured in the BBC production of Les Miserables.
To register for this fundraising event or to obtain more information, please email CHS on: email@example.com.
What does CHS do?
CHS has been supporting the international community in Belgium since 1971, regardless of nationality or circumstances . No-one should feel that they are alone – and help from CHS is only a telephone call away.
CHS operates a Mental Health Services Centre in Brussels, housing an international team of professional therapists who provide support for a comprehensive range of mental health issues. All the CHS therapists speak English and many also work in other languages. The therapists are supported by a team of volunteers who also manage the administrative aspects of CHS, a non-profit organisation.
CHS also operates a 24/7 Helpline in English, for children, adolescents and adults. Calls are free of charge, anonymous and confidential. The Helpline is staffed by a team of volunteers that is recruited, trained, supervised and supported by the mental health professionals working with CHS.
You can always donate direct to CHS via this web page. and the service also relies on volunteers.
