Remember this: Because of Covid, 1.000+ babies are growing today in Amsterdam, in such poverty that their parents depend on food aid and cannot afford basic hygiene items!!!!! Together with the Red Cross, we bought nearly 200.000 diapers to keep them dry!

He lives (among many) in abandoned train wagons in Thessaloniki. Wave - Thessaloniki is the only chance to get anything at the moment. They supply many of these people with sleeping bags, thermal underwear and a warm meal.

We are very proud to support the Jepi Makandra ,(Help each other’s in Surinam language), project from the two awesome Claire Wie and Micha Puma. Not only do they support 100 families deprived of their income by the Covid pandemic with weekly food packages, but they also advise them on how to cook the less familiar vegetables they distribute. Who knew that chicory could be delicious?????
