Press release: Valentine’s Day stops by at the Stëmm vun der Strooss
Thanks to the Majany Foundation, whose administrative management is run by the King Baudouin Foundation, Monday, 14 February 2022, was a special day in the various premises of the Stëmm vun der Strooss.
This is already the fourth year in a row that the Majany Foundation has offered roses to the Stëmm on Valentine’s Day – the day of lovers. This year, 440 red roses were distributed in the association’s social restaurants in Hollerich and Esch-sur-Alzette, but also in the vocational rehabilitation workshops, Caddy and Schweesdrëps, as well as in the Kanner Stëmm service. This made it possible to offer roses to both the disadvantaged people who use the association’s various services and the 150 people working in the vocational rehabilitation workshops.
“Offering a rose to a loved one is a gesture of great emotional value and I am happy that I am able to give a rose to my wife,” shared one of the person in need.
The director of the charity, Alexandra Oxacelay, does not want to speak for the clients who are received every day at the different centres, but points out that this action on Valentine’s Day is one of the great moments of the year. She adds: “I never get tired of it because every time it brings smiles and emotions to those that society too often tends to forget and ignore.”
The Stëmm vun der Strooss would also like to thank the Fleurs Vry company who delivered the roses early in the morning to the different locations of the association.
