On Saturday 9th of April, we together with Rotarians and Welzijn Scheveningen joined our forces to help Ukraine.
Part of our team was standing in front of two grocery stores to ask people to buy food or other goods, such as diapers, soaps, candles and matches, for Ukraine.
Others were driving the van to collect the goods and to sort them in different boxes so that in the later stage it’s easier to find what you’re looking for.
The people doing groceries were very generous and all in all, we collected 95 boxes!!
On Monday, the boxes were delivered from Den Haag to Nieuw Vennep where they were loaded into trucks by Stichting Holland-Oekraine, a foundation transporting goods from the Netherlands to Ukraine.
The boxes reached their final destination in Ukraine on the 19th of April.
Thank you to everyone who participated!

Our year 2021 ended with a big project that we did for Stichting Perspectief. As an outreach project, we gathered Sinterklaas gifts for women and children who are not home due to domestic violence. We wanted to do something special as Sinterklaas could bring joy to everyone around. After we kicked off our project, we gathered donations to buy presents. Via one of our members, we also contacted the local ING office, which also decided to participate and donate a lot of gifts.
On Thursday, 2nd December we gathered together to wrap all the gifts, so the next day we could hand them out at locations of Stichting Perspektief. We had quite a lot of fun wrapping gifts.
On Friday, 3rd December 2021, we members of the club Rotaract Scheveningen, left our warm houses on a very cold evening and joined in an unexpected journey. The Solidarity. We received so much love and gratitude from children and their mommies living in one of the numerous shelters that house survivors of domestic violence.
The journey with each family, Sinterklaas, duizendenkleuren Piet and two wonderful assistants was unique! Who received the gifts were us! Thank you, children, and mothers, for believing in generosity, accepting our gifts and returning it with tenderness and with lots of smiles and happiness! The Sinterklaas is in each one of us! Tot volgend jaar!
