Etienne Schneider with Stëmm vun der Strooss president Marcel Detaille, director Alexandra Oxacelay, and vice-president André Theisen in the association’s Kleederstuff, which provides clothing for the homeless and those in need.
In his role as minister for health, deputy PM Étienne Schneider (LASP) spent time at the HQ of the association which helps vocational reintegration.
Schneider’s visit coincided with publication of the 100th edition of the association’s Stëmm vun der Strooss magazine. He met with the editorial team, and staff from the kitchen, which feeds people in need, and the Kleederstuff which provides clothing.
The minister learned that some 50 people currently benefit from the association’s vocational reintegration programme. In total, some 150 people are cared for by Stëmm vun der Strooss, thanks largely to financial aid provided by the ministry of health, in five locations--two in Esch-sur-Alzette, two in the City of Luxembourg and one in Schoenfels Castle.
