The Delhaize Group Fund is supporting 32 neighbourhood projects in Belgium and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg

The Delhaize Group Fund is supporting 32 neighbourhood projects in Belgium and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

The Delhaize Group Fund, managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, has provided support for 32 Belgian and Luxembourg initiatives in 2014: 11 in Flanders, 5 in Brussels, 11 in Wallonia and 5 in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. These initiatives encourage neighbours to get together and work for the common well-being of their neighbourhood or village.

On 18 November, the Delhaize Group Fund announced the results of its 2014 call for projects, the seventh yearly call since the creation of the Fund. A total of 32 projects, across Belgium and the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg, were awarded support worth EUR 122 000 in the aggregate. The prize-winning initiatives bring together residents from different social, cultural and economic backgrounds. All participants strive for a common goal: that of neighbours getting to know each other better, creating friendship and feeling good in their community.

The Delhaize Group Fund has this year again lent its support to the Mega Image* Community Fund in partnership with the Bucharest Community Foundation. The second call for projects was launched in September 2014, with the objective of supporting initiatives that build conviviality in Bucharest and Ilfov, in Romania.

* Mega Image is the brand name for the supermarkets of Delhaize Group in Romania.
