Portrait of Hope: “It’s that time of the year again, our favorite project XMAS CHEER 2016!”
WILLEMSTAD - This year the Stichting Bo Mes Forsa, the Your Own Strength Foundation was chosen. This foundation exists since 2008 and is led by Mrs. Yvette Melfor.
Mrs. Melfor guides children, young women and men during their difficult times, home problems and school drop outs. She does family counselling and various charity works.
During the vacation period she received around 100 children at her place and she does all kinds of learning activities with them. These social interactions are extremely beneficial for their overall growth and progress.
Portrait of Hope was honoured to work with her this year and will continue to do so in the future.
The children, about 80 of them, arrived last Sunday at the Foundation’s house. Portrait of Hope played games with them. The winners received special prizes. The children also had lunch and Santa Clause came to present them with gifts.
It was a great event for the children. Portrait of Hope gave these children a great Christmas gift.
