On Thursday, February 8, Jean-Pierre Marchais, president of the Foyer d'enseignement populaire (FEP), officially presented the sum of 2,000 euros to the president of the association Enfance et Adolescence, Anabelle Douteau-Dry, in the Council Chamber. . This association, which was founded in 1996 and whose headquarters is in the Rochefort Hospital Center, contributes to the improvement of the stay of hospitalized children accompanied by their families in the pediatrics department, as well as to the promotion of well-being and the training of medical staff. .

This amount comes, on the one hand, from the FEP Nos P'tits Papillons department which, under the responsibility of Adeline Rambeau, organized two children's scholarships (spring and autumn), but also joint activities such as the Fête de la music and the evening of July 13 , and on the other hand, starting this year, the Magi lottery organized by the parish of Saint-Agnant.

Around Anabella, the president, Erika, Élodie and Mélanie, the voluntary members of the association are delighted with this financial contribution, which is always welcome in the dawn of new projects that complement the developments already carried out, such as decorating the ceilings or decorating trompe-l'oeil boxes, in neonatology or even a corner for teenagers with a couch and equipped video unit. “Our main projects for this year concern the children's rooms, painting the cribs in a softer color, today in bright orange, decorating the walls of four rooms with the theme of forest animals, making part of the wall. in the form of Charente-Maritime themed games to occupy the child in the sampling room, setting up a touch table where children can play together in the pediatric emergency waiting room and a project already implemented last year and renewed this year with a visit to Fort Boyard for adolescents and from which we are the only association that benefited”, concludes Anabelle.
