They are sometimes called ‘paradise-birds’ in the Netherlands. This is an umbrella-name for people who live ‘at the edge’ of Dutch society, be it homeless ones, people with drugs or other addiction (past) or refugees/sans papiers. Emmaus is an international movement (like SCI) who provides a daily volunteer work-schedule and often also a place to live for those paradise-birds.
At the same time Emmaus is selling second-hand goods and the profit is either going to the Emmaus living and working community or to projects in the global South. In line with the solidarity-mission of Emmaus and those of SCI, VIA-NL is organizing a project at Emmaus Langeweg.
At the moment VIA-NL is urgently looking for volunteers for this project. Detailed information can be found at https://workcamps.sci.ngo/icamps/FI-KVT/en/camp-details/camp-13600.html
Please help us to find volunteers for this special project! Thanks in advance…..
