A moment of care in the dark days before Christmas

Many elderly who still live independently do not always receive the much needed attention and care. Especially this year in which social contacts must be kept to a bare minimum due to the Corona pandemic, they sometimes just crave for a nice chat and human contact. The home care workers do a really great job in this regard ­čží, in addition to providing medical support, they also ensure social contact with the clients. We cannot praise them enough for this, they are the best! Together with one of the home care workers, we came up with the idea to send as many independent living elderly in Vlaardingen, who are known to the various home care organisations in December, a ┬ásmall gift and a Christmas wish, so that they know that we care and think about them, especially during this tough Corona winter. ┬áBecause we consider ┬á‘support your locals’ to be of high importance, we looked for a great local partner in Vlaardingen and found one in Koffie, Thee en Zoet.

A lovely shop with an amazing selection of coffee and tea and the best chocolates in Vlaardingen. Their home-designed and baked sweets are also very much recommended!

 The campaign was more than successful, we received so many positive and lovely reactions, much appreciated. It was a very fulfilling project, thanks to the family for the assistance in packing and the home care workers for distribution, we were able to deliver over 1250  Christmas gifts.
