    Women helping women!

     Hearts for HOPE creates hand-crafted pillows for women recovering from breast cancer surgery. (The size and shape of the pillows make them ideal for holding against surgical incisions.) Pillows are donated free of charge to Belgian hospitals that treat breast cancer patients. 

     We divide up tasks, including: tracing patterns; ironing, cutting, & pinning fabric; machine-sewing the pillows, adding the stuffing, and hand stitching the pillows closed. All skills sets are welcome, and no sewing experience is necessary! Feel free to bring friends.

    The September 27 session will take place at the home of AWCB member, Sheryl Abrahams: Ave des Hêtres Rouges 56, 1970 Wezembeek-Oppem. The house is about a 10-minute walk from the Stockel Metro station. Free street parking is available. Snacks will be provided!

    Brussels has many stories. Stories of success and prosperity, as well as those of poverty, hardship and marginalization. Join AWCB HOPE Charity partner, Oasis Belgium, as we explore the many lived experiences of Brussels' residents. We'll learn about broader issues of migration, trafficking, and gender-based violence, as well as what we as concerned residents can do to ensure a better future for all who share our city. 

    This one-hour walking tour will begin at Botanique, make its way respectfully through the Saint-Josse-ten-Noode neighborhood and the Red Light district, and conclude at an Oasis partner café (the Noodle Bar) near Gare Centrale to discuss Oasis' work to empower vulnerable people in Belgium. 

    Please contact events@awcb.org with questions, and visit www.oasisbe.com to learn more about their work. 

    A 5-10 Euro donation is encouraged for all tour registrants, with all proceeds going directly to Oasis Belgium. We will all pay separately for lunch at the Noodle Bar- prices approx. 10 Euro for main dish.
