In Amsterdam, there are many locations dedicated to welcome families that are going through a difficult moment. There are many reasons, such as domestic violence, financial problems, drugs, physiological problems and etc. At the shelters, they can find a safe space and support for families in stabilizing the crisis and working towards suitable housing. Many families move in with children, who also receive some guidance.

During the summer break, children will not have the chance to travel,  you can contribute by giving a gift for children, they will love the kind surprise and will have much fun playing with the new toys.

You can select which age you would like to contribute to, and an email will be sent to you with some gift ideas and how to have the gifts delivered before August 1st.
