Yes it could be really great to start with that !
I'm volunteer at Médecins du Monde. So if you want I could help for making
a link with them. Next week we will start the « Plan Hiver» (
http://www.medecinsdumonde.be/belgique/le-plan-hiver) in SAMU to open
medical facilities for homeless people. In parallel, they also have a
project for migrants this year « Quai 22 » at Willebroeck (
I know that the Hackathon's winning team made a mapping tool for disabled
people. Perhaps it could be nice to contact them and see if the technical
architecture of their tool is interesting for the project ?
By the way, to place this first activity the January 29 at the ULB, we
(Moritz and I) need to know what kind of room would be needed (capacity,
etc ...) and with what time-schedule...
Kind regards, Maë//e
