Over the past weeks, and as part of its “Planet 21” strategy, Sofitel Brussels Europe and all its ambassadors mobilized themselves for united actions with the charities “La Poudrière” by Emmaüs and “Les Amis du Nouvel Institut Bordet” through the project ‘101 Tables pour la Vie’. The goals: offer catering and clothes to the charities, enhance visibility for those local initiatives and  help the charities to save life, relieve the pain and provide assistance to people in need. Quite a program!

A huge charity diner for supporting hospital construction
Full of willingness, BE Café Marché Jourdan, the restaurant of Sofitel Brussels Europe, was delighted to participate to the 13th edition of ‘101 Tables pour la Vie’ (101 tables for life) supported by the French actress Brigitte Fossey. By offering the catering to the participants of the great evening on June 1st 2017, they helped “Les Amis du Nouvel Institut Bordet” to finance the construction of the research laboratories of the new institute Bordet, which is now under construction on the site of Anderlecht (Belgium). This large-scale project is going to allow the hospital to welcome more patients in an optimal comfort and offer better working conditions to the researchers.

95kg of clothes collected
Since April 21st, Planet 21 day, the ambassadors of the Sofitel Brussels Europe were also mobilized to collect clothes, shoes and blankets for the benefit of the Emmaüs charity. Lead by M. Manguso, General Manager of the hotel, four of them went to the community “La Poudrière” (central Brussels) to bring the output of this incredible collect. Thanks to those private donations, we are proud to allow “companions of Emmaüs”, to reconstruct themselves and find shelter.

It is thus the end of a charitable month full of meetings and hopes for Sofitel Brussels Europe.
