Today princess Mathilde made two visits in the city Liège.
She went to the psychiatric hospital of Liège,where she visited the ward 'Fil à fil', specialized in the psychiatric guidance between parents and children. They want to help parents with psychological problems in the expression of emotions towards their children. Mathilde met them and the hospital staff.
Afterwards she went to the Collectif des violences familiales et l'exclusion (a refugee center for beaten women), she had a private meeting with the women (not at the place where they are staying because their address has to stay anonymous).
Some pictures of her last visit to Africa: as unicef ambassador she presided a Belgian humanitarian mission to Niger in February 2004. Attention was given to water, education for girls and blind children, and the health and hygiene of children and women.
She also had meetings with the chefs of local tribes.
Against a backdrop of colourful balloons and a crowd of smiling children, Princess Mathilde of Belgium helped launch a children's charity effort at the town hall of Brussels on Wednesday.
Princess Mathilde, a longtime champion for young people, was supporting the "School, My Right!" campaign for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
Dressed in a burgundy jacket and dark trousers, the princess first attended a brief meeting with UNICEF general manager Christian Wiener and other luminaries. But it was the later appointment with lesser known faces – throngs of enthusiastic schoolchildren, to be exact – where the mum-of-two was clearly in her element.
The luminescent young princess couldn't stop smiling as she spent the morning chatting with youngsters, clutching her own contribution to the rainbow of balloons brightening the town square. The show of support was all in the name of UNICEF's latest charity project, which aims to encourage access to a quality education for all kids, especially for young girls
