#Ikwilhelpen: How Belgians Are Using Twitter To Help After The Attacks

In the hours following the terrorist attacks in Brussels, people in and around the city started offering help online.

The hashtags #ikwilhelpen and #openhouse are being used to offer shelterrides and more. The hashtag #ikwilhelpen means "I want to help."

Along with Belgians offering help online, a Twitter account was created to connect drivers with those stranded during the attacks.

@brusselslift has connected drivers and passengers most of Tuesday morning.

The explosions that rocked Brussels were at the international airport and at a subway station in the heart of the city.
