On Wednesday 18 January 2023, the Rotary Club of Bascharage-Kordall presented a cheque for €2,500 to the Stëmm vun der Strooss charity which helps the homeless and vulnerable members of society; the money will go towards the finanicing of the new social restaurant in Ettelbruck.
The presentation was the initiative of Roland Schreiner, President of the Rotary Club of Bascharage-Kordall 2022-23. He emphasised "Supporting the disadvantaged in our society is a concern that is particularly close to my heart and we always ask ourselves to what extent we can make our contribution".
The event took place at the Threeland Hotel in Pétange, in the presence of members of the Rotary Club of Bascharage-Kordall and the director of the Stëmm vun der Strooss, Alexandra Oxacelay. Over a pleasant lunch, she detailed how their donation will be used: the financial support will be invested for part of the renovation of the new social restaurant at 47 Rue Prince Henri in Ettelbruck. The facility, which will welcome needy people from the north of the country, is scheduled to open at the end of January.
Alexandra Oxacelay explained that the Stëmm vun der Strooss has been present in Ettelbruck since March last year, serving meals in a car park opposite the train station. The move to the new premises will facilitate their work while providing more comfort to those in need.
This is not the first time that the Stëmm vun der Strooss has been able to count on the generous support of Rotarians. The Rotary Club of Bascharage-Kordall, a non-profit association, has supported the Stëmm on several occasions, notably in 2021 to help finance the new vocational rehabilitation workshop in Sanem. Alexandra Oxacelay warmly thanked those present and invited them to visit the new social restaurant in Ettelbruck once it opens.
