We have been in an ‘intelligent lockdown’ in the Netherlands for more than 60 days. Keep your distance, don’t see friends and family, stay at home and wash your hands extra often. The corona crisis affects us all. Together we take care of our elderly and our children. With support, attention and love. We look forward to the easing and we are slowly but surely going back to the (new) normal
Technicum, part of USG People, believes in War Child’s work. Even in this time, War Child continues to work for vulnerable children in war zones. Unfortunately, the children in the countries where War Child is active often do not have the options to implement the corona measures. They are on their own. How can you stay home when you don’t have a home anymore When your father is gone and your mother has to go far to find food? How can you wash your hands when soap is a priceless luxury? And how can you keep your distance in a crowded refugee camp, tent to tent?
Many of us can hardly imagine this kind of situation, because we have been celebrating 75 years in the Netherlands that we can live in peace. And we are proud of and grateful for that. But we realize all too well that this is not so obvious.
From 17 May War Child will start with the documentary series: ‘Children in War, 75 years later’ on SBS6. Jan Terlouw, Hanneke Groenteman, Jeroen Krabbé and many more celebrities talk candidly about their childhood during and after the Second World War and the consequences of this on their lives.
Watch the three-part documentary series ‘Children in War: 75 years later’.
With this documentary War Child draws attention to children at war. Because children still grow up in war. 149 million worldwide. With the same fears, anger and pain. With one big difference: we can help these children. War Child helps these children to break through their silence and thus process their war story. So that they can give their experiences a place and build a future.
