What is Help Centre Belgium?
We were founded during the pandemic 2020 as a group of friends providing assistance in Belgium.
Today, we are a large humanitarian organisation operating in crisis situations, filling the gap in the immediate aid system.
As a modern association, we conduct numerous activities supporting the building of the Polish community in Belgium, but most importantly, fostering the development of volunteer teams.
We are the core of Polish Day in Brussels event
What do we do?
Help Centre Belgium as a humanitarian organisation activates in crisis situations such as pandemics, lockdowns, floods, or wars.
In the meantime we carry out project aimed at empowering the Polish community in Belgium: Wiadomo.be, Mimo Wszystko Kultura, Centrum Wszechświata, or Polska Biblioteka w Belgii.
We have filled the space of our organisation’s building with books as part of the “Polish Library in Belgium” project. It is a collection of over 10,000 books in the Polish language.
We are the first Polish online media for the Polonia community with our own television studio and original program “Nie dzielę w Niedzielę” (Undivided Sunday)
Culture, especially its promotion, is one of our primary activities at the Centrum Wszechświata (Centre of the Universe). It’s a place uniquely designed for author’s evenings, mini-concerts, and cinema events.
This is our place on Earth, the building of the Help Centre Belgium Volunteerism. It is a multifunctional space combining an internet TV studio, the organisation’s office, a library, but most importantly, the main hall for volunteers.
How was the Help Centre Belgium formed?
Our organisation was founded on March 18, 2020 at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown in Belgium. As a group of friends, we started helping in Belgium providing assistance to those in need and the homeless. Since then, we have built a tremendous community of volunteers in Belgium.
Today, we are a Belgian non-governmental organisation operating in various fields: humanitarian, cultural, educational and media-related. And most importantly, in the field of integration between Poles and Belgians, as well as within the Polish community in Belgium.

Since 2020 in our volunteer work we have collaborated with numerous institutions in Belgium, in Poland, both governmental and non-governmental. However, the most important has always been the contact with private individuals.
The actions of providing assistance to the homeless during the pandemic, helping during the floods in Belgium, and supporting those affected by the war in Ukraine have witnessed tremendous displays of kindness and support from the society.
