Christmas time is a time of thoughtfulness, of unhurriedness and the family. Children get their presents and the adults enjoy their time among the family and relatives. Unfortunately not every child spends their Christmas days in that manner. Beginning of December, just after “Sinterklaas”, donated the CCOE small gifts and accumulated 1.500 € to a charity that offers children a new life.
Helping, where help is needed
The original idea of the director was, to find a charity or an organization that we could support with small gifts or with donations on a long term basis. On Facebook we discovered the “Dushi Huis Stifting” in the Hague. The Director, Colonel i.G. Wolgang Paulik, took the chance to go with a small international delegation to the children and the persons in charge to hand over our donation.
Small charity offers kids a new life
It is one out of four houses, that provides children in unfortunate situations with a new home. Seven children with very different biography’s, ranging from 8 to 15 years old, found a new permanent home in this house. They´ve been taken care of 24 hours, 7 days a week from their so called “adults”. After a previous visit and a long chat with the “adults”, we decided to buy them a new television and donate money for the community.
American style auction crowns the conclusion of our collection
Our colleagues and comrades donated in smaller and bigger amounts the whole year for a good cause. Crowning conclusion to this collection was an auction where a variety of things got sold. Donated toys, sports clothing and specialties from different nations for example, to raise a little bit more for the good cause.
