Thinkwise Christmas box brings joy to Woongroep De Beele

The Thinkwise Foundation has donated 2,000 Euro to Stichting van het Kind. This donation, in cooperation with Stichting van het Kind, has been used to put together 15 Christmas boxes, to cheer up children who can’t go home for Christmas.


Christmas fun

The Beele youth care facility houses 150 children. They are divided into several groups of about 10 children per group. In part due to Covid19, many children will probably not be able to go home for Christmas. They will have to spend the holidays with the group. With these Christmas boxes we want to give these vulnerable children cheerfulness and relaxation during the holidays and promote their self-reliance and development. The box contains educational games, Christmas cards and stamps, a Pathé home voucher and a cookbook. Each box also contains a gift card so the children can order a small present for each other to put under the Christmas tree.

“These Christmas boxes will bring many happy faces at the Woongroep”, according to Sascha van Veen, director of Stichting van het Kind.
