Rapport d'activités pour l'année 2013



As every year your donations were used 100% for the baskets


It was November 10, 2013, at St. Étienne Temple in Moudon, the church was packed to come and listen to the chorus of schoolchildren from Moudon, the Cabaretto Trio and also the Crisinel family! It was an amazing evening!

Special thanks to the City of Moudon for the provision of the temple.


The concert began with les Notes Magiques, the chorus of schoolchildren from Moudon, a supergroup of very talented boys and girls! Thank you to the children and their director Florence Berger, and Francine Vuagniaux at the piano.


It went on with cronies Cabaretto Trio! (left to right) Willy Oberhänsli, Jean-Christophe Jaermann and Pierre-André Schütz who led us in songs d’ici et d’ailleurs, words and music by Jean Villard-Gilles.


In the second part the concert started up again with the Crisinel family from Forel-sur-Lucens! (left to right) Pascal, Pierre-Daniel, Pierre-Alex, Flavie, and Jean-François who after their victory at un air de famille TV show did vibrate the walls of St-Étienne.


A big thank you to Willy Oberhänsli who put all his energy to organize this concert and make it a success!




Then came the time of the concert in the Collégiale of Estavayer-le-Lac, December 8, 2013, with the virtuoso accordionist Grayson Masefield, mixed choirs La Pastourelle, La Bergère and l’Écho du Suchet.

A special thanks to the Estavayer-le-Lac parish for the provision of the magnificent Collégiale.


Grayson Masefield was born in Auckland, New Zealand. His talent is recognized worldwide and has already won many prestigious competitions, including the title of world champion in classical and variety accordion class in 2009. Grayson gave us the great privilege to open this concert.

Then it was the turn of mixed choirs l’Écho du Suchet from Rances and La Bergère from Orbe to perform.

Both choirs sing together for three seasons and form a large choir of fifty members, led by Corinne Tschumi.



Followed the voices of singers of the Pastourelle, the mixed choir of the village of Cheyres and its director, André Denys.

The Pastourelle serves a repertoire ranging from the Renaissance to the French song, from classical to gospel and Christmas songs, but above all it is a chorus that echoes of songs and friendships since 1967.


Thanks to André Denys for organizing this wonderful concert at Estavayer!



Five stands to raise funds were held on weekends from November to December 2013, in the OBI malls in Renens, the Migros in Cugy as well as the Autogrill in Bavois. A big thank you to the volunteers who gave, as every year, some of their precious time on the stands, beautifully!

Ecuador, December 2013.

This year we start the project in Quito, the capital, which rises at 2'850m in the heart of the Andes. Quito was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978 for its wonderfully preserved colonial architecture. The city is very close to the zero latitude (the line of Ecuador) and is surrounded by volcanoes Pichincha, Cayambe and Cotopaxi which gives it a unique setting.





The distribution of Christmas baskets will take place in Quito local church Cordero de Dios in the neighborhood of La Floresta.
We invite people from the neighborhoods :
Villamaría, La Guadalupana, El Guabo, Matilde Alvarez, Guamani, Guapulo, La Floresta, La Vicentina, av. 10 De Agosto, av. La Patría, av. Colón, av. Amazonas, La Carolina, La República, El Ejido, Sta Clara, El Centro Hístorico, av. Eloy Alfaro, El Comité del Pueblo to come and collect a basket Saturday, December 21, 2013.
