Guy Harles and Philippe Dupont handed over a check for €8,500 to each of these structures. Support for these actions demonstrates Arendt’s long-term commitment to health and to equality of opportunity for all children. The funds donated to these associations come from registration fees for the Arendt Financial Law Forum, one of the major annual meetings organised by the law firm Arendt & Medernach. This event brings together legal experts and other decision-makers in the financial sector to inform them about legal, regulatory and tax developments which may have an impact on their businesses.

2019-Arendt-Remise-Cheques Associations

 

"Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner" works to help children suffering from cancer or a rare life-threatening disease. Its aims include supporting the families concerned, raising awareness of childhood cancer and supporting paediatric cancer research. A cheque was handed over to Mrs Anne Goeres for the foundation.

This year the funds will be used to finance two very different projects. Firstly (8000€) for the staging of the theatre piece “Oscar et la dame rose” – (with performances scheduled for 13 and 14 November 2019 in Luxembourg). The play sensitively tells the story of Oscar, a young 10-year old boy suffering from terminal cancer. The second project (500€) relates to the development of a neuropsychology service which is used to establish an individual report for each child to determine his or her strengths, weaknesses and needs. The neuropsychologist then offers a rehabilitative follow-up of the child and raises the awareness of his or her school and family. The goal is to develop compensatory strategies and to limit the harmful effects of the illness on the daily life of the child.

The association "Pour un Sourire d'Enfant a.s.b.l." supports children living in extreme poverty in Cambodia with food and material assistance, housing and schooling. A cheque was given to its representative, Mrs Marie-Hélène Trouillez.

This year the funds will be used to build new classrooms for children in Phnom-Penh, Cambodia. The goal is to reduce early school leaving in pupils from very disadvantaged backgrounds whose enrolment in government schools has already been sponsored by the association. Also planned is the reconstruction of the initial wooden buildings, which have fallen into disrepair. It is estimated that 44 classrooms are needed for 2,100 children. The construction work is scheduled for 2020.
