At the sides of the ‘Eclat de Rire’!
The ‘Eclat de Rire’ (Burst of Laughter) is a place for welcoming people, a place where they can meet and express themselves in the multi-cultural district of Sainte-Walburge in Liège (Belgium). Every day the association assists children and adults who are suffering from social, linguistic or financial difficulties.
The objectives of the professional and motivated team are, among others, to contribute to the social insertion and integration of people, to weave inter-cultural links, to offer a place for expression, creativity, listening and meeting, and to offer language training and to support educational courses in schools…
The activities of the Eclat de Rire contribute to the social insertion and fulfilment of persons from the district and its surroundings, who regularly visit the not-for-profit association. These activities enable participation in social, cultural, economic and political life while also encouraging inter-cultural exchanges.
Within the context of its policy in the social domain, the John Cockerill Foundation has decided to support the Eclat de Rire and more particularly the establishment of the Baby Station. This is a welcoming point recognised by the ONE ("Office de la naissance et de l'enfance" - Office of Birth and Childhood) which enables adults to pursue their process of integration under the best possible conditions. The Foundation also assisted the not-for-profit organization in the charitable jogging event which took place on June 15th 2019.
So if you want to join the movement, come and run as a relay team (1.3km or 2km loop) on June 15th.
