Family of asbestslachtoffer launches project ‘DA'S BEST: We want to do with the positivity of our dad asbestproblematiek address
Londerzeel The children and widow of Dirk Van Sande put their shoulders to the wheel ‘DA'S BEST", a project to raise awareness around the asbestproblematiek to increase. Seven years ago, died Dirk to longvlieskanker, caused by the inhalation of asbestos. “He was only 51 years old but at the last moment, he remained positive,” says daughter Tinneke. “With the same attitude, we want to now, asbestos in public places to address.” Next month is already the tribune football club KFC Malderen aborted.

It is known that in the spacious surroundings of Kapelle-op-den-Bos the asbestproblematiek is still far from resolved. The draailingen are incorporated in numerous materials, both above ground as underground. With all the risks that offers. That had to be the family Of Sande painful experience when she was their dad Dirk seven years ago, barely at the age of 51 lost by longvlieskanker. With their project ‘DA'S BEST " like they are now in a positive way a commitment to at least public places as much as possible asbestos free.

“Long lived with the idea that as long as you have not arrived, it's all no harm could be done”, tell Marjan and Tinneke along with their mother Myriam. “But from recent studies it now appears that the asbestos as a result of erosion, for example, already in the air. And, as in the lungs of people. There are still many public places where the typical corrugated iron sheets on a roof. I think back to the numerous playgrounds of schools. And also here at the football club KFC Malderen is that the case. My two children play soccer here, but it is distressing that this kind of stands to see. We cast, however, no stone for the football club. It is just rife in this region.”

The asbestos abatement, of course, is a work of long breath. “Everyone knows it but the cost now once money. You can say that the Board behind it and that the government only needs to solve. But that takes a very long time. Too long, of course. You can be angry about but that didn't help. Because our dad is very positive in life and things in motion, we cross now the hands from the sleeves. We want people to raise awareness and money to obtain than project per project to tackle. First time in Malderen and then hopefully also in great Londerzeel. We, the family put first, our shoulders with the help of volunteers, but it is obviously intended that people join in.” Also brother Thijs and sister Julie are also involved in the project but were not at the interview.

The initiative, which has only just been launched, has in any case immediately a great success. “Clearly, there is a great deal of support. Our Facebook page has in that short period of time to 1,000 likes. A lot of people also offer all the help. There will be barbecues and pannenkoekenslagen be organised to money in the coffers to spend. We feel that this is a huge social commitment on going. The last weekend of August we organize a large straatbarbecue.”
