This year, Rotaract Scheveningen Club cleaned the canals of the Hague city as part of the End Plastic Soup action day on June 4th. This was just a day before World Environment Day.
We started with a canoe near Bierkade and did a full circle collecting plastic and trash in the city canals. By cleaning the canals, we avoid trash especially floating plastic entering the oceans.
It was a good day to do some outdoor activity and thank you to all the people who encouraged us!
In the past weekend, members of our club helped with 2 activities.
The first one was with the local city farm, Stadsboerderij Schildershoeve, where we planted some flowers and installed a plane spring swing for children to have fun with, now that the spring is here. People working at the farm were happy with the result!
The second activity was to collect non-perishable items for a social shop of Scheveningen, Schappelijk. The Social Shop Schappelijk offers extra help for the residents of Scheveningen, who find themselves in a delicate financial situation. Members of Rotaract Scheveningen, Rotary Scheveningen and Schappelijk were placed at 5 different supermarkets near the Scheveningen beach. With the help of the residents, we were able to collect 235 crates of non-perishable products.

On November 27, volunteers of the Rotaract Scheveningen helped the local home shelter Leger des Heils. Leger des heils is a shelter home for homeless people where the residents can stay for 2 years. They also provide a shed for non-residents where they can stay and have some coffee.
The club volunteers helped the shelter prepare lasagna for the residents and non-residents. The volunteers had a fun time preparing the lasagna. Even though the food was served past the usual dutch dinner time due to the non-working oven, the guests and residents of the shelter were very understanding and patient. Everyone loved the lasagna and complimented it.
On Saturday, 20th of November, members of our club spent the day with the kids at the community center “De Kroko Kinderclub”. This center is located in one of the neighborhoods of the Hague. Every two weeks, children from different backgrounds meet and take part …
