Last Thursday we were very happy to welcome Amsterdam councilwoman Marjolein Moorman to our distribution projects in the North of the City. We are extremely grateful for the support of the municipality of Amsterdam. Thanks to them, and the Funds who finance the lion share of the project, we are able each week to feed 10.000 residents of Amsterdam who lost their income because of the pandemic.

We are incredibly proud to have been able to play a major role in the distribution of food in Amsterdam for undocumented families who lost their income due to the Covid pandemic. Please read, in Dutch, how four major caritative funds and us, in no-time, put together a project that feeds 10.000 people per week.

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!

This is what we supplied since last March, to the projects distributing food to families deprived of their income by the Covid crisis in Amsterdam. We currently weekly deliver 2.800 packages, that is between 25 and 30 tons of food each week!

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.

Thanks to volunteer extraordinary Maxi Hager and her small (but mighty!) assistant Riley. Not only do they cook lunch two times a week, but they also collected money to buy socks, face masks, gloves, hygiene items and tons of sweets 😍😍😍!

Thanks to a collaboration with our friends from Christian Refugee Relief we have been able to buy nearly 50.000 diapers! We have shared them between the different communities we are currently supporting with a weekly food package in Amsterdam. This is going to keep lots of babies happy and clean !With enormous thanks to Kansfonds, whose generous donation made this possible.
