BELGIAN SCOUTS OFF TO THE PHILIPPINES TO HELP REBUILD TACLOBAN

Brussels, 3 July 2014 ---   Ambassador Victoria S. Bataclan, Philippine Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg and Head of the Philippine Mission to the European Union (EU) received twenty-two (22) Belgian scouts, aged 16 to 23 years  old, for an afternoon of "kainan, kodakan, kuwentuhan at kasayahan" as a preview of their travel to the Philippines last 30 June 2014.

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
