BBH offers 600 shower kits to the Stëmm vun der Strooss
For the third consecutive year and under the coordination of Heidi Helwagen, 380 employees of the Brown Brother Harriman, a privately owned and managed financial services firm, managed to assemble 600 shower kits for the benefit of Stëmm vun der Strooss.
Within the framework of the event “Bring your child to work” these shower kits contain
– among others- a tooth brush, soap, shampoo, conditioner, are carefully assembled and brought together in sealed quality bags. This proceeding guaranties the hygienic properties of all the elements included and distributed for free to 300 homeless persons, unemployed people, people living under the status of R.M.G. , ex-convicts, and asylum seekers, emigrants and mentally defective persons and/or addicted to drugs.
Day per day, all these persons push the entry door of Stëmm vun der Strooss located 7, rue de la Fonderie in Luxembourg-Hollerich. At the same address the association also offers them a meal for the modic price of 50 Euro/Cent, makes available to them a cloakroom, a laundry room and various other services, all for free and accessible from Monday to Friday 11.30 am to 16.30 pm.
In 2016 Stëmm vun der Strooss served a total of 100 130 meals 71.420 in Hollerich, 28.710 in Esch. In comparison to the year before, this represents an increase of 36,7%.
This illustrates only one of numerous activities realised by BBH all along the last five years for the benefit of persons in need, as BBH also got mobilised to raise funds or collect clothes. Furthermore, BBH shared its know-how to enable Stëmm vun der Strooss to reorganize its administrative services and analysed the annual statistics. Finally, BBH managed to gather a group of no less than 10 volunteers for the annual Christmas celebration of the Stëmm vun der Strooss.
