Alternative support

Alternative support

Would you like to support Katako-Kombe and make a difference? Would you like to help us as we continue building our project in the South? You can support us in several different ways.

1. Voluntary contributions

Can we persuade you to make voluntary contributions? All support is more than welcome and is passed on to the project to 100%.

  • Contributions of less than €40.00 or deposits for which no tax certificate is required can be donated to the account of the Jan Steyaert Foundation (BE12 8900 1462 4092), with Katako-Kombe (no tax certificate) as the reference.
  • Would you like a tax certificate for your donation? Donate a minimum of €40.00 to the Memisa Katako Kombe account (BE79 8805 6167 7133; BIC: BBRUBEBB) with 910/8000/00021 as the mandatory reference.

2. Creative contributions: coffee mugs

Artist Helen B has designed coffee mugs that reflect the solidarity between Maria Middelares General Hospital, St Vincent General Hospital Deinze and their partner hospitals (Katako-Kombe and Kasongo-Lunda, respectively), with a nod to mother and child care. They are hip, made with respect for people and nature and are for sale (€14.00 per mug) at our hospital restaurant. Read more.

3. Curious contribution: diary

Rik Neirynck has been on eight missions to Katako Kombe. He meticulously kept a diary that he published under the name ‘Ils vont là où mêmes les moustiques sont sauvages’ or ‘To where mosquitoes are still wild’, meaning that in this so remote aphrodisiac region, only nature has a hold on everyday life. The profits go to Katako-Kombe. To order, follow this link.

4. Delicious contribution: café barista

This year, the barista coffee bar once again decorated the atrium of Maria Middelares General Hospital in support of Katako-Kombe. Previous editions were a huge success with the staff and visitors at our hospital. Stay tuned for more concrete information to come.
