Join the EU staff special contribution to help the communities affected by the recent floods in Europe.
In the past week, we have witnessed the disaster unleashed by climate change in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and further afield as the storm moved southwards.
Our hearts go out to the victims of the floods and to all those who are suffering.
Many of you have reached out to us to ask if the EU Staff COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund could help. Knowing that many colleagues have already donated time and resources to the emergency response, as EU Staff for Climate, we felt that the fund’s network and setting can be an asset to support the victims going forward as they rebuild their lives.
This is why we have set up a dedicated fundraiser to gather EU staff solidarity to the communities affected by this new catastrophe.
With the help of King Baudouin Foundation and its European partners, your donations will contribute to:
- support the European regions most affected by the floods;
- fund projects to directly help those in need to cope with and recover from the disaster; and
- show EU staff solidarity with those suffering from the devastating effects of the climate crisis.

Our help is needed. Europe is counting on us.
