Whatever the problem, the CHS HELPLINE in Belgium (02 648 40 14) provides a listening ear and helpful advice in English, 24 hours a day, every day. Whether you are looking for confidential support during a difficult time, coping with a family crisis, or simply looking for the name of an English-speaking doctor, trained CHS volunteers are always on hand to take your call.
CHS invites you to do your part to help it continue to help every person in Belgium who needs its services. The CHS HELPLINE relies on external funding and donations to remain operational. Please donate today.
For US taxpayers
U.S. donors can support CHS activities in a tax-efficient way through a contribution to the “American Friends of CHS in Belgium Fund” at the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS). Because KBFUS is a public charity, within the meaning of Sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1) of the IRC, donors may claim the maximum tax benefits allowed by U.S. tax law for their contributions. If you wish to support CHS, here is how to proceed:
- Gifts by check: Write your check to KBFUS, write “Community Help Service ASBL” in the memo section of the check, and send it to KBFUS, 10 Rockefeller Plaza, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10020. (See below for an example of the gift form which should accompany the check.)
- Gifts by credit card: Go to the attached link on the KBFUS website and click on the Donate button. https://kbfus.networkforgood.com/projects/22546-c-kbfus-funds-community-help-service-asbl-be
- Gifts by wire transfer or to contribute other types of property: Contact KBFUS by email firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone +1.212.713.7660.
