Two new reception centres for Ukrainian refugees will open in Brussels in the next few days in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Saint-Gilles. Ukrainians who cannot find shelter will be guided to the collective housing solution by the organisation Bruss’help.

About 50,000 Ukrainian refugees have settled in Belgium since the invasion of Russia, a fifth of them in Brussels, Bruzz reports.

The first long-term reception centre for Ukrainians in Brussels opened in July. The new centres will be at the Sunrise Centre in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and the Esplanade Centre in Saint-Gilles.

In the coming weeks, three more hotels will also open their doors to Ukrainians arriving in the city, Bruss’help announced.
