Eclat de Rire


L'Eclat de Rire is a place of welcome, meetings and expressions located in the multicultural district of Sainte-Walburge in Liege (Belgium). The association, composed of a professional and motivated team, works daily with children and adults who have social, linguistic or economic difficulties. The John Cockerill Foundation supports Eclat de Rire in its development through financial support as well as through technical and human support.



The John Cockerill Foundation works for the safety of young people in the use of new technologies. We are the partner of ECPAT Belgium, member of ECPAT International, the only network exclusively dedicated to the fight against (sexual) exploitation of children.

Covid-19 actions

Belgium - France - Maroc

True to our convictions, during the Covid-19 crisis we coordinated and deployed actions to respond to frontline health needs. The objective was to support existing initiatives and/or create new ones for the benefit of structures such as hospitals, reception centres, Red Cross, health care workers, etc. John Cockerill Group employees wishing to take part in these actions during their period of temporary unemployment were given the opportunity to express themselves via an internal appeal. In total, around fifty employees contributed directly or indirectly to the actions carried out. They were joined by a volunteer network of almost 50 external volunteers.



Every child, regardless of his or her family situation, has the right to develop in an environment that provides well-being and dignity.
