Phil Lane founded Oasis Belgium, which is a charitable organisation that aims to provide relevant assistance to the most vulnerable groups in Belgium, offering support and helping them to find community.
The Welkom project supports migrant women who are victims of abuse and exploitation. Many find themselves in situations of human trafficking or an abusive relationship. Through the Oasis helpline, they are helped to escape exploitation and find community, employment and access to lawyers.
The Buurtbar Project runs a neighbourhood mobile café that aims to reconnect vulnerable elderly residents to their neighbourhood in Beringen and combat social isolation by teaching them how to use the internet.
Phil and Rachel live with their 4 children near Brussels. Phil has been serving with Oasis since 1994. Rachel is a classroom assistant in a local school.
