Gladys Maximilien visits Switzerland
We had the pleasure of welcoming Gladys Maximilien, manager of the Maison des Anges children’s home, to Switzerland for a few days. We took her visit as an opportunity to organize a party in the woods with all of the families in Switzerland who have sponsored a children at the home. On Saturday, 2 June, we met families from all corners of Switzerland at the Oberrüti woodland hut. The party was a great success, and a fantastic opportunity for everyone who came – children, parents, Gladys and Association members alike – to get to know each other and have chance to talk.
We also took Gladys on a trip out to the Rigi, met other friends of hers and of Maison des Anges, and visited Joseph Wendy, who almost lost his leg two years ago. Having received emergency assistance from the Association, and further treatment in Germany, he is now living there with his host family.
