Cherish Gent

for parents who have lost a child

Monthly Cherished Moments

Join us on the 2nd Saturday of every month between 3.30pm and 6pm for a comforting conversation with other parents. Everyone is welcome to share their stories.

Feel free to bring a photo or scan of your child to paste (or not) in our Cherish book.

If you would like to bring a copy of a card or a photo of a gift you have sent or shared with friends and family, together we can create a catalogue of ideas for other families to refer to.

To share our stories with each other in peace, we currently ask that you do not bring children to Cherished Moments. We do plan to offer opportunities in the future where children are certainly welcome.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to send an email to or via Whatsapp 0456 14 92 83


We welcome you into our courtyard to light candles together for all the babies and children who are so missed.

Feel free to drop by on Sunday, 10 December between 6pm and 7.30pm.

Stay for a heartwarming chat, we will be offering everyone a hot cup of chocolate (also vegan).

We would like to ask all parents to help by keeping children away from the candles to avoid accidents

Koestermoment Gent (Cherish Gent) is an initiative of Jovita & Axel Goldschmidt in collaboration with Gentse Spruiten vzw and with the support of Wijkgezondheidscentrum De Punt. If you are interested in becoming a partner or supporting this project, we would love to hear from you.
