At iKanbi, this season holds a special meaning, tinted with solidarity and sharing. This year, our toy drive has been more than just an event. It was a brilliant demonstration of generosity and support for a cause close to our hearts.

The donation call was launched in mid-November, and the response surpassed our wildest expectations. This time, we had the opportunity to collaborate with the Assistance à l’EnfanceAssociation.

Together, our goal was clear: to target children in the greatest need. It was a wonderful opportunity to spread a little magic and comfort among the most vulnerable children.

A meaningful collaboration with Assistance à l’Enfance

The association’s mission is to provide children in need with all forms of assistance, whether it’s material, moral, psychological, legal, or social support. This winter, they organized their 39th toy collection, an event supported by schools and businesses. It has led to the distribution of over 3900 toys to 1030 children.

The heart-wrenching reality of child poverty

The reality of child poverty in Belgium is heartbreaking, affecting more than one in ten children in the country. These figures reflect a worrying situation where many children are growing up in difficult economic conditions, facing daily challenges to meet their basic needs.

In this context, initiatives like toy redistribution hold crucial importance. These toys offer much more than entertainment; they bring hope and a sense of normalcy to these children, often deprived of simple childhood experiences.

A positive environmental impact

By giving toys a second life, it can have a positive and significant environmental impact. The reuse and recycling of toys help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, which is essential to preserve our environment.

A Warm Thank You to Our Committed Collaborators

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to our collaborators whose active participation has been the key to this successful collection. Their generosity and dedication have been essential pillars in spreading this wave of solidarity.

Every smile we’ve brought about is a victory, a step toward a world where compassion and solidarity are fundamental values.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to making this toy collection a success.
