Belgian royal family funds accommodation for Ukrainian families – POLITICO


The Belgian royal family will make three properties available to Ukrainian refugee families, the palace confirmed on Thursday.

Three Ukrainian families will be hosted by the Royal Trust, an entity managing the assets of the Belgian royal family, in two properties in Brussels and Wallonia. Families will move into these properties in early April.

Additional land in Tervuren, on the outskirts of Brussels, which formerly served as a vaccination centre, will also be made available to the municipality for the collective accommodation of Ukrainian refugees.

King Philippe of Belgium visited the Heysel refugee center in Brussels on Wednesday and the Royal Trust formalized the decision on Thursday.

The Royal Trust is an autonomous public institution that manages Belgian assets dating from the reign of Leopold II in the early 1900s.

About 200,000 Ukrainian refugees are expected to arrive in Belgium, and 10,000 have already been registered in the country for temporary protection.
