The Young Socialists Brakel have organized a collection campaign in recent weeks
cooperation with the Welfare Link in the context of the World Day of the Resistance against
Poverty on October 17.
Jelle Cabus (Chairman Young Socialists Brakel): “For this action we asked to mainly collect clothing to donate it to the
most needy. We were pleasantly surprised with the great response. We were given so many clothes and even
some other items (such as bicycles and child seats for the car), which we are forced to
were able to complete our action earlier than expected.
On November 5, the volunteers of the welfare link came all the collected clothes and stuff
to pick up. We are happy that there is still so much solidarity in Brakel. Young socialists Brakel does
therefore a warm call to maintain this solidarity by continuing to focus on the fight
against poverty in our community. Poverty is still too often the result of policy failures.
In the name of the Young Socialists, and everyone who will appreciate the collected material
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who contributed.”
