Ulule crowdfunding campaign to help build an information platform
Here is a beautiful project to which we are sensitive. SAM, the caregiver network is a project launched by the Non-Profit Carers Brussels NGO, which aims to provide relevant information to caregivers (SAM). Here is the link to read the project and participate:
Who are SAMs (caregivers)?
Here is a small explanation from the funding page:
Men, women, husband, wife, daughter, nephew, neighbor, cousin ... we would like the "SAM" to recognize themselves, to be proud of being SAM.
SAM represent 18% of the Brussels population and 10% of the Belgian population ! They are essential today for their loved one but also for the health system, and tomorrow even more ...
It is therefore vital that these people raise their hands so that we can better support them ... and allow them to accompany their loved ones longer and in better conditions!
When you are a SAM, you need information, support, or just to realize that you have become a SAM by necessity. We do not choose this role, it imposes itself on us naturally and more often than not.
It is therefore important to realize this to seek help and find respite to avoid burnout. So if you too are sensitive to this cause, do not hesitate to take note of the project and to participate. The campaign is accessible via https://fr.ulule.com/sam-reseau-aidants/
Thanks for your help !
