St Michael is one of the three schools within the community of Zimflora (a Dutch Flower Group company) they work with. One of the recent projects is the Learning Support Program. The objective of the program was to fund one learning support teacher to grade 3 & 4 students who are in need of extra learning support. It is great to hear that 14 children have already progressed through this program. With another 13 months ahead – we are positive that more children will benefit from this very important work the teacher is doing. We are grateful to support this wonderful long term project.

Dank aan Stichting Ons Tweede Thuis voor de zorg van Andy!

Begin maart is Andy Plasmeijer, broer (28 jaar) van de schoonzus van Tim ten Brink overleden. Andy had de ziekte van Sanfilippo, een progressieve en dodelijke stofwisselingsziekte, waarvoor op dit moment helaas nog geen effectieve behandeling bestaat.

Tim werkt bij OZ Planten B.V., één van de bedrijven die onder Dutch Flower Group valt. Tim heeft zich tot onze foundation gericht, met de vraag of er een mogelijkheid was om Ons Tweede Thuis, en met name de medewerkers die voor Andy hebben gezorgd, te bedanken.

Onlangs heeft Gerda Stokhof met Tim een cheque van €2000,- overhandigd aan Chantal van Burken en Babette van Holland, de persoonlijk begeleiders van Andy. Jarenlang is Andy hier liefdevol opgevangen. Chantal had een grote foto van Andy laten maken voor Andy's ouders, die ook aanwezig waren bij dit emotionele moment.

Today multiple colleagues were invited to the International Treasure House Ministries, Inc. In April 14 of our colleagues joined the Amstel Gold Race, to raise money for this amazing charity. We raised the funds to over €7.000,-.

It was amazing to see all the lovely children and their amazing caretakers.

12.04.2022

Afgelopen zaterdag heeft een team van 14 Dutch Flower Group collega’s meegedaan aan de Amstel Gold Race. Met deze prestatie hebben zij zelf maar liefst €4.885(!) opgehaald voor The Treasure House in Kenia. Dutch Flower Foundation vindt dit zo’n mooie prestatie van het team voor dit mooie doel en heeft daarom het bedrag verhoogd naar €7.500.

Tijdens de toerversie werd een afstand afgelegd van 125 en 150 kilometer, met vele hoogtemeters en kregen zij te maken met alle weersomstandigheden: hagel, regen, wind, en zonneschijn.

International Treasure House Ministries, Inc. vangt weeskinderen, jonge moeders en geredde kindbruiden op, die te maken hebben gehad met misbruik en verwaarlozing.
