In Brussels, a lot of families with young children spent lockdown in an apartment. In order to meet their needs, we came up with the idea of opening up the outdoor spaces at the Elmer non-profit association. That way, children could play outside safely. The demand from parents proved huge and they were enormously grateful. It is therefore nice to know that in these difficult times, we were able to offer something meaningful to Brussels families.
