Loïc Vliegen joined the Souliers du Coeur this morning. Our rider participated to a food distribution to poor people in Liège, accompanied by players of Standard de Liège, Sporting Charleroi and table tennis player Jean-Michel Saive.
A nice initiative to support those in need during the Covid-19 sanitary crisis. It is also an excellent opportunity to underline the work of all people who work every day for the health and well-being of others.
« The football teams originally came up with the idea. 50 football players and some other athletes collected money to donate food to homeless people and masks to some associations. When I was invited to join, I didn’t hesitate to engage and give a little help in Liège. My role this morning consisted of preparing and packing dishes that would be distributed to homeless people. »
« It was important for me to be there, it was a good life lesson. We don’t always realize how many people live in difficulty. These people suffer all year around, and even more during this crisis. It made me feel good to contribute. »
