Keeping people connected to their families and communities and supporting them to avoid relapse and return to institutional life is a difficult task. We need your help.
To donate from the United States via US Friends of You Belong, please select the link below:
The King Baudouin Foundation United States is the leading resource for philanthropic giving to Europe and Africa. We enable U.S. donors to support their favorite causes and organizations overseas, and provide European and African nonprofits with cost-effective solutions to raise funds in the United States.
If you wish to donate to YouBelong, you will be helping us liberate people with severe mental illness from institutional life in an asylum like setting, in Uganda, and returning them to their family and local village community. And then we work to keep them in the community, to minimize relapse and return to the institution, and to address deeply embedded stigma. We want to develop an approach to deinstitutionalization and a new model of care in the community that can also be used in other African countries.
You may wish to make an anonymous donation, but if you would like to write a message as well as pressing the DONATE button below, I would be most grateful. That would also give me an opportunity to thank you personally for your donation. I would treat your personal details with respect and with confidentiality and they would only be used to provide you with an annual update of the work of YouBelong. You can write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a UK tax payer (income tax/capital gains tax) and you would like us to claim Gift Aid on your donation (an additional 25p to every one pound of your donation), then with your message to us at email@example.com we would need your formal consent (on donations above 20 pounds) to claim Gift Aid from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), as well as your title, first name, surname, full home address, postcode, and date.
I am very happy to keep you informed about our work.
With my gratitude for your support
Chief Executive YouBelong
