Kanouté, Musaba & Marcelin visit the Lindenhove residential care center and support BUBAO Ter Dreve

Following the COVID incident of December 20, 2020, players Franck Kanouté, Anthony Musaba & Harisson Marcelin paid a visit to the Lindenhove residential care center in Knokke on Wednesday afternoon. Earlier that afternoon, the trio also visited BUBAO Ter Dreve in Sint-Michiels.

After Cercle imposed financial punishment on the players involved, the trio had chosen, on their own initiative to financially support the BUBAO Ter Dreve project. Since February 2020, Cercle Brugge has been collaborating with Ter Dreve, a school in Sint-Michiels for special education for children with moderate and/or severe intellectual disabilities.

Promoting and highlighting social responsibility together: that is the aim of this partnership. That is why activities are organized at the school at regular intervals: some of Ter Dreve's students have already walked onto the pitch with their heroes from Cercle, but there are other plans. Training in football given by Cercle players for example, on the playground at Ter Dreve, but due to COVID-19, this idea had to be postponed. To support the school in its specific goals and its work with students with disabilities, the players have chosen instead to support this project financially.

After handing over a check to Ter Dreve, the players went to the Lindenhove residential care center in Knokke. In the residential care center, the players spoke with some residents who had recovered from COVID-19 and helped serve the evening meal.

“An experience that really makes you think,” Harisson Marcelin said afterwards. “The direct and indirect consequences of COVID-19 are immense, I now realize that. I spoke to an elderly lady who had not been able to see her family for six months. That was really eye-opening for me. To be able to cheer up the lady in question with a visit, also pleases me,” Marcelin continued.

“I spoke to a woman who had COVID-1 during the first lockdown. When you hear those stories, you can only be happy when you are in good health,” Franck Kanouté added. “We have immense respect for all of the doctors and nurses who, wearing personal protective gear, are in the line of fire every day to fight the virus. I realize that what happened was wrong. This will not happen to me again,” he concluded.

Anthony Musaba was also impressed: “I have already seen pictures of how care providers come to the rescue of coronavirus patients, but I never expected it to be and feel like this. You hear and read a lot about COVID-19 every day, but today we really saw how everything is organized. It was a good lesson, if you ask me. ” Musaba also had a conversation with a lady who had had COVID-19, without knowing it: “That only shows how dangerous the virus is and how important it is to follow the measures put in place to combat it. I have learned my lesson.”

Before the visits took place on Wednesday afternoon, all of the players and staff had tested negative for COVID-19.
