Antwerp Based Support

Fawco Target Project

Breast Cancer Support

Locally based support includes donations of goods such as crocheted blankets, diapers, baby formula, school supplies, bed linen clothing, and feminine care products to various organizations including Moeders Voor Moeders, De Kleine Vos/Sisters of the Little Ones and Cherut.

Other support includes a monetary gift that was made to the Red Star Line Museum, Bednet, Museum aan de Stroom (MAS) and Make A Wish, as well as sponsoring fetal monitoring equipment to an Antwerp hospital. 

You can read more about the various philanthropy activities here. 

The goal of the FAWCO target programs is to improve the lives of women and girls.

The FAWCO Board, in consultation with The FAWCO Foundation Board, chooses target issues on a revolving basis through four areas of interest: Education, Environment, Health, and Human Rights.

The Target Program 2023 - 2025 focuses on the Environment –"Our Natural Environment, Empowering Women and Girls to Ensure a Sustainable Future" with the Target Project: Awesome Blossoms; a project of Safe Spaces, Nairobi, Kenya.

Celebrating 15 years!

Making heart-shaped pillows to support breast cancer patients in seven Antwerp hospitals (AZ Klina, ZNA Middelheim, Universitair Ziekenhuis Antwerpen, ZAN Jan Palfijn, GZA Hospital Sint-Augustinus and Rivierenland, Bornem) has been the signature project of AWC Antwerp since 2008.

We started making pillows in 2008, and named the project Caring Hearts in 2012. 

You can learn more about Caring Hearts below.

All the work is done by members and friends of AWC Antwerp. We use fabric that is mostly donated by current and past members. Other materials needed to complete the pillows, such as stuffing, labels and packing material, are either donated or purchased with funds raised by the club.

Thank you very much to a long-time partner of the club, Garniwat, for subsidizing the stuffing used for the pillows.
