The Protestant Social Center in Brussels
The IPC Mission of the month for February is the Protestant Social Center. The PSC was created as a unified Protestant presence in Brussels, providing basic services to those most at risk in our area. IPC was one of the founding partners, and we have been working together for many years.
This month we will be reaching out to two of the most vulnerable groups that PSC assists:
- Refugees who have recently arrived in Brussels
- Women who are currently in prison
Both groups often have very little self-esteem. With little or no income, neither has the luxury of purchasing the most basic items for personal hygiene. Cleanliness is one of the first steps towards a new start in life – it helps regain dignity, which is definitely a step in the right direction.
So, this month we will be raising money to purchase basic personal hygiene products, such as: shampoo, shower gel, body lotion, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other similar products. After we buy these products, we will prepare identical individual gift bags which PSC will distribute.
If you would like to assist with shopping or preparing the gift bags, please contact Nancy Evans.
Thank you for your generosity! These products will make such a difference in their lives!
On behalf of the IPC Missions Team, thanks for helping us be a blessing in the world!
