We will present the basis of a method of fundamental solutions (MFS) adapted for the non homogeneous Laplace equation. Using the approximation of the second member by fundamental solutions of the eigenvalue equation, a meshless method approaching the solution of the non homogeneous partial differential equation can be derived. Some numerical experiments showing the approximation of a function by these point sources are presented.
