The appeal is addressed to parents for whom such a gesture is financially possible. It aims to prevent the organizers of holiday courses (playgrounds, stays, camps) from encountering too great financial difficulties following the covid-19 crisis and the cancellations of activities which ensued.
“By this gesture, we want to encourage parents who can to support youth associations,” said De Croo (Open Vld) in a press release.
“The margins in the youth sector are low. Although parents have the right to claim the registration fee, we suggest that they not do so if it is financially feasible for them, said Glatigny (MR).
