About Amal Gent vzw
With almost 50 years of experience in supporting newcomers, Amal Gent VZW has built a reputation as a reliable source of help and guidance. They offer practical support to newcomers, ranging from helping them find suitable Dutch-language courses to providing useful information about life in Flanders. These efforts contribute to smooth integration and help newcomers feel at home in their new environment.
This year, they are also taking part in our annual Refugee Walk.

This year, they made extra efforts to raise funds for this noble cause.
'Me Miss Me' movie night
One notable collaboration Amal Gent VZW has entered into is with Sphinx Cinema in Ghent. On Thursday 28 September, they will organise a film evening, the proceeds of which will go entirely to the Refugee Walk, in support of Refugee Council Flanders.
The film "Me Miss Me" being screened offers an in-depth insight into the life of a young Iraqi man trying to build his life in Belgium. The story of Lubnan, who made his journey from Iraq to Belgium and is now struggling to obtain identity documents, sheds light on the challenges refugees face when integrating into a new country. It is an emotional and moving portrait of resilience and perseverance.
By joining hands with Sphinx Cinema and donating the proceeds from this film evening to the Refugee Walk, Amal Gent VZW shows its determination to actively participate in supporting refugees and raising awareness about their situation. Their commitment to an inclusive and supportive community is an inspiration to many and highlights the value of local organisations working for a world where everyone has equal opportunities.
