We are working on this page…

in the meantime… get an overview of our
2022
accomplishments.

We organized 13 events, celebrated our 20 year anniversary and raised 27,2 K € which will be distributed amongst 14 local and international projects, making a difference to hundreds of families and children living in poor conditions.

We are very proud of what we’ve done so far but none would have been possible without you. Thank YOU for participating to our events and…

  • for donating food, medicine and warm clothes to the Ukrainian refugees (March) and to the homeless (December)! Hundred of boxes collected throughout the different collections this year!
  • for giving your children’s pre-loved toys a 2nd life! There will be a lot of children happy this Christmas! We earned 1,8 K € from the sale and the rest donated to our local partner s MJC l’ile aux tresors (Escale) and the Rotary Club for L’association ALC (Agir pour le Lien social et la Citoyenneté).

Special thanks to you who made a personal donation just because, or gave us your Christmas vouchers, and of course, to Amadeus for your yearly subvention and thousands of furniture items and to the B&F team for your patience working with us to make it all happen 😊!

We are proud to be part of this amazing Helping Hands family and we invite you to join us and be part of it – come as a volunteer, member, or a project owner! It is a beautiful experience and you’ll have a good time too!

We wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and the best wishes for the New Year!
