Computers and paint for Stëmm vun der Strooss: Strong signal from Fidelity International in Luxembourg
On the initiative of the F4E (Fidelity For Everyone) Committee of Fidelity International in Luxembourg, five employees agreed to repaint the terrace of the social restaurant in Esch-sur-Alzette, located at 32 Grand Rue. It took only two days to transform a dilapidated and sad area into a warm and cosy terrace.
The social workers took great pleasure in carrying out this action because a warm welcome for all is fundamental to the association’s social restaurants, and especially in times of Covid, it is important to offer comfort to the most destitute. As Annick Blasiard, a graduate educator, pointed out, “By doing so, Fidelity has given a strong signal that companies also have a social responsibility”.
This is not the first time that Fidelity employees have supported Stëmm vun der Strooss. In April, they donated office equipment, financed three computers and two printers, making the administrative staff’s work much easier. As icing on the cake for Stëmm vun der Strooss, they also mobilised their employees to collect donations of clothing and hygiene products which were distributed at the Stëmm branch in Hollerich. And they don’t intend to stop there, as further appeals for donations will be launched via their employees in the coming weeks.
