Globally, almost 80 million people are fleeing violence, war and persecution. They travel huge distances, often by foot, in search of a safe home. Every September, our colleagues in Ghent participate in the annual Refugee Walk, with a symbolic route of 10 km to raise money for people on the move. A recreational walk for them, a harsh and daily reality for people who are fleeing their country.
“This walk is a great initiative to raise awareness and money, and to support the work of Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen. In Ghent, we use the moment to reflect on our privileges, spend some quality time together outside of working hours, and realize that together we are stronger! We already look forward to the next refugee walk!”
