    Today marks Saint Nicholas Day, a momentous occasion when the joy of giving comes to life for our Angel Tree children. To those who sponsored children, made a monetary donation, and/or helped wrap gifts, your unwavering support made it possible for The American Women's Club of Brussels to bring joy to the hearts of 360 children across six charities in our city. 


    Angel Tree is a true labor of love for AWCB, made possible by your contributions. Your commitment to keeping this tradition alive has not only touched lives but has made the holiday season truly special for those in need. As we reflect on the joyous moments we've created this Saint Nicholas Day, let's carry the spirit of giving forward into the holiday season and beyond. 

     

    We make a great team and together we are making a lasting difference in the lives we touch. Thank you for being the driving force behind this wonderful cause.

    On behalf of the 50 children who participated in Lina’s Project this year, I would like to extend a huge thank you to the members of AWCB. Thanks to your generous donations , these children enjoyed exciting activities throughout the summer months.

    Two highlights:
    A 6 yr old child who recently had both feet amputated and was learning to walk again, was able to attend an inclusive sports camp and enjoy activities specially adapted for her needs.
    A 13 yr old boy attended soccer camp, worked hard enough to be selected for 5 tournaments and his team won the trophy! What a boost for his self-esteem!  You made it possible!

    Thank you!

    President, Lorraine De Bock, received a special invitation from Clementine Buggenhout, President of Le 8ème Jour (The Eighth Day), along with Pascal Duquenne, a well-known Belgian actor and advocate for the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in the arts. The purpose of the invitation was to explore Le 8ème Jour, a non-profit association based in Brussels. 

    Established in 2002 by Pascal Duquenne and his mother, the organization is dedicated to integrating disabled individuals into society through the creation of supported independent community residences and activity centers.

    Named after the 1996 film "Le 8ème Jour," in which Pascal Duquenne played a character with Down syndrome and won the Best Actor award at the 1996 Cannes Festival, the association aims to emulate the film's spirit by fostering acceptance, understanding, and support of people with disabilities. The success of the movie has played a significant role in changing societal perceptions and promoting greater inclusivity. 

    Le 8ème Jour has achieved notable advancements and presently operates six supported living facilities and two activity centers across various locations in Brussels. 

    During her visit Lorraine had the privilege of connecting with residents and staff, learning about its initiatives, and gaining valuable insights into the mission of Le 8ème Jour.

    AWCB expresses gratitude to Clementine, Pascal, and both residents and staff of Le 8ème Jour for their gracious invitation and the opportunity to witness the positive impact it has on the lives of those it serves.

    Lunch at Restaurant Brugmann in Brussels was truly delightful. The venue’s refined atmosphere set the stage for a charming afternoon, where members indulged in an exquisite three-course menu. Everyone enthusiastically agreed that a return visit for lunch in early 2024 is a definite plan. Reuniting with cherished friends and welcoming new faces always brings an extra layer of joy and connection to our AWCB gatherings.

    AWCB member Aglaia Pomoreva extended a gracious invitation to AWCB members for a special exhibition titled "Magic Flying Carpets," seamlessly bridging East and West cultures. The event was a collaborative effort with the Embassy of Azerbaijan and curated by Ponart Consulting. Hosted at Maison Frison, the historical site housing Foundation Frison Horta, is a cultural institution that was built in 1884 for Maurice Frison by Victor Horta.

    Visitors were treated to an exclusive tour of the bottom and first floors by Napur Tron, owner of Maison Frison and founder of Foundation Frison Horta.

    Our Friends giving celebration at All Saints Church on November 16th was very special.

    Members feasted on a scrumptious soul food meal with smoked turkey and Thanksgiving fixings including dessert that was prepared by AWCB sponsor, Dooley’s Smokehouse.

       

    It was a wonderful occasion to celebrate our camaraderie, share laughter and express gratitude for the unifying bonds that shine brightly, illuminating the essence of our extraordinary club.
