Students start crowdfunding ‘Greening the Camps’: a roofgarden project for refugees in Jordan

Evi Hellebaut (25) studied engineering-architecture at the KU Leuven and after three years switched to the architecture programme in the Campus Sint-Lucas Brussels. After completing her bachelor’s degree, she visited the Palestinian Refugee Camp of Jerash, locally known as Gaza Camp, and started with friends Machiel Van Nieuwenhove and Joric Docters van Leeuwen, a non-profit organization called ‘Greening The Camps’: a roof garden project to improve deficiencies in the camp.
