At times like New Year, we think about our relationships and how we can thank them for the cooperations and bring best wishes for the year to come. Therefore we choose to give to those who need help the most.
We trust that you will join us in wishing them a Happy New year. Here are the 3 different projects or ngo’s that we personally got to know and started to support.
Bongwe Primary School
De Bongwe Primary School is situated in Ukunda, south of Mombasa, Kenya. The public school has 500 pupils which come out of the poorest families. This project supports one healthy and nutritious meal a day for each child. In this way, parents will send their children to school not only to educate them but to feed them at the same time.
Cara Nova Rainbow Center
Cara Nova Rainbow Center is a recognized non-profit organization in Uganda. The project has two main objectives:
CNRC gives orphan children a chance to go to school. They give a good education in order to get a diploma, so the students will find an opportunity to work, to survive and to help their family.
CNRC helps the people who give the orphan children a home. These are often grandmothers, uncles,... or even strangers who take care them. They help them with clothes, medicine and other supplies.
VZW Moeders voor Moeders
VZW Moeders voor Moeders gives immediate, material help to mothers in need. They help mothers who are in deep financial difficulty. They are referred to us by welfare, doctors, hospitals,priests…It concerns mainly families that are missed by the social care system: poor people with heavy debts, drugabusers, families with a chronically ill child, divorce victims …More than half of the families are Belgian.
De Vleugels - Hippotherapy 't Stokpaard
De Vleugels focusses on people with intellectual disabilities, both minors and adults and persons with NAH (non-congenital brain injury). They believe in the power of hippotherapy. Hippotherapy is a guided activity with the horse as a partner, where the contact can contribute to an improvement of the quality of life of the client. The relationship between the client and the animal, the movement impulses and the symbolism of the horse can be used to achieve different treatment goals.
