For Shoot for Good’s next edition, we will support La Maison des Gais Lurons, “A sun for children”
It is an accommodation center for seriously ill children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The main objective is to offer these children and their families a place of relaxation and rest for a long weekend or for a whole week during school holidays.
When a serious illness strikes a child, the whole family is affected. The pain, the isolation, the medical treatment, the incessant journeys between the house and the hospital, the brothers and sisters who must also be taken care of, are all elements that make daily life difficult, sometimes unbearable. The whole family unit is then greatly weakened. Welcoming these children and their families means offering them the opportunity to escape from their daily lives by living “something else”.
The goal is to bring them an escape, relaxation and happiness for a few days.
