Emmaus in Belgium
In Belgium the three Emmaus groups are all traditional Emmaus communities. We have 60 companions living and working in our 3 groups. Combined, our 3 associations collect around 1,000 tons of furniture, clothing and electronic goods per year, 70% of which are brought back into circulation in our shops.
A creamery is helping refugees to rebuild
The creamery was created in 2007 thanks to a partnership with the Italian Emmaus community of Villafranca. It currently employs 12 people and collects 2,000 litres of milk per day from small-scale local farms.

Emmaus in Poland
Emmaus has had a presence in Poland since 1996 and the movement now has 3 member groups in the country. The three Polish groups are all “classic” Emmaus communities which welcome people in and do the work of collecting, sorting, fixing and selling objects on at a low price.
