KNIGHTS OF RIZAL BESTOWS WOMEN OF MALOLOS AWARD TO A BELGIAN, MADAME BRIGITTE VAN YPERSELE

29 AUGUST 2014, BRUSSELS

The Order of the Knights of Rizal has bestowed the Women of Malolos award upon Madame Brigitte van Ypersele (née de Bus de Warnaffe) during their nation-wide assembly held on  23 August in Brussels, Belgium.

Leading the ceremony was Sir Jeremias C. Singson, Supreme Commander of the Knights of Rizal, who lauded Madame Brigitte's truly inspiring and steadfast humanitarian work that highlighted the spirit of the Women of Malolos Award towards public service.

Minister Lolit Capco, on behalf of the Philippine Embassy, extended her congratulations and appreciation for Madam Brigitte's tireless efforts in promoting education among young women in the Visayas and equipping these young scholars with education that will be the foundation for their future as well as the confidence and determination to reach for their aspirations for a purposeful life.

Madame Brigitte, in her remarks, conveyed the joy and sense of fulfillment she found in her Philippine work  and her gratitude to her Philippine team of about 30 hardworking Filipinos led by Dr. and Mrs. Palami in overseeing multiple projects benefiting Filipino women and children in need for the past 30 years. She is married to Compte Jacques van Ypersele de Strihou, who has served as the Principal Private Secretary of the King of the Belgians from 1983 to 2013, and who was present in the ceremony along with their children and grandchildren. She thanked the Knights of Rizal in Belgium for their recognition of her humanitarian work and conveyed her appreciation for the support of the KOR and its counterpart women organizations, the Kababaihan Rizalista, the Las Damas Rizal and the Ladies of the KOR.

The Women of Malolos award is the highest honor awarded by the Knights of Rizal to a woman of exceptional achievement that has exemplified the ideals of Rizal. It is given once a year. The previous recipient was Mme. Brigitte Ayrault, wife of Jean Marc Ayrault, former Prime Minister of France.

The Belgian scouts will be going to the Philippines in July to assist in the finishing works of the reconstruction of St. Therese Education Foundation of Tacloban, Inc. (STEFTI) school in Tacloban.  The group will be in Tacloban from 8 to 20 July and in Palawan from 20 to 27 July 2014.

The young Belgians are members of a Catholic youth organization called the Unité Notre Dame du Rosaire 16e, a unit of the GCB (Guides Catholiques de Belgique/Catholic Guides of Belgium).  GCB is the equivalent of the Scouts in the Philippines.

Ambassador Bataclan expressed her appreciation for the group's effort and reiterated her gratitude to the Belgian people for their sympathy and speedy assistance towards the victims of typhoon Haiyan.   She noted that the group's mission is another proof of the close solidarity and friendship between the peoples of the Philippines and of Belgium.

Members of the group are as follows: Laetitia Domb (23), Jerry Fruy (23), Thomas Porlier (23), Stephane Pierrard (23), Marie Antoine (22) and Camille Claus (23),  Loic Francotte (17), Victoria Lefevre (18), Paul Asselberghs (18), Alexande Jewell (17), Adrien Ruscher (18), Remi Colombe (18), Delfine Hatufenne (18), Pierre Bellemans (18), Aaron Bangala (18), Alexandre Satelens (18), Julien Swaelens (18), Luxas Box (18), Wiliam Kies (18), Louis Nicodem (18), Ladislas Lefebure (18), Bastien Van Pottelsberg (18).

The group's coordinating partner in the Philippines is Mrs. Joy Palami who is a teacher at the said school.

STEFTI, which was hard hit by Typhoon Haiyan is a school established in 2001 and supported by Baron Jacques van Ypersele de Strihou and his wife, Brigitte.   Baron van Ypersele was the Chef du Cabinet of the former Belgian monarch, King Albert II. END
