We are so thankful for what all of you managed to do over the past few weeks! No fewer than 401 children will be made happy this week with a beautiful gift from Sinterklaas. Where many mothers have no money to buy a nice gift, this has now been made possible through the efforts of our (yet again) amazing volunteers!
But who are those children and where do these children live? Good question!
We work together with
Timon has several emergency shelter locations in Amsterdam where single young mothers, single young fathers, and families who do not have a place to live, are given a safe place to live. They receive guidance here to become more independent.
Blijfhuis helps to stop domestic violence. We collected gifts for a reception center in Amsterdam where mothers live alone with their children. Mothers who live here are often victims of domestic violence.
HVO-Querido offers families shelter, (outpatient) guidance) and emergency shelter. It concerns homeless families who experience various problems.
