Experiences from 2014

For the third year in a row children visiting over the winter season could tell us who they wanted to receive a wonderful patchwork woollen blanket. Choosing from the 360 different wishes was no easy task, especially as a number of them were extremely moving once again. Some of the wishes related to people who were grieving or living in poverty and could really do with the warm comfort of a blanket like this. One blanket was given to Sinticha, who had recently lost her mother. Samual wanted a blanket to go to his mother and sister, who live in a hut in Ethiopia. Frederique wanted a blanket for Femke and her family, as their house had burned down. The fourth blanket was sent to Noor and Jente. They wanted to surprise their teacher Tamira, as she is always so kind.
