The Help a Hero program supports key long-term volunteers who ensure continuity and growth in humanitarian projects. While most volunteers only stay a week, these long-term experts effectively use all these volunteers’ presence and optimize project impact.
We are providing weekly food and other basic needs items to undocumented refugees in Amsterdam since September 2016. Due to the corona pandemic, the demand has increased steeply.

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?????

We have started distributing the computers generously donated by IFF, International Flavors and Fragrances and the awesome brothers Mustafa and Hudaifah al-Harazi. The first ones went to a deaf gentleman, a family needing one for their children online schooling and NGO De Moeder is de Sleutel, (The Mother is Key), who assists vulnerable youngsters with homework.
