Benedictus medal

During the New Year's Eve celebration in the Werenfridus church in Wervershoof, the Benedictus Medal was handed over to Kees Ooijevaar, secretary of our foundation. The Benedictus Medal comes from the largest monastery in the world, Monte Cassino. The monastery is built over the tomb of St. Benedict. Benedict is the Patron of Europe.

With every 6 months presidency of the EU, Benedict's torch goes from this monastery to the European country that then presides over the EU. Each year Monte Cassino gives a medal to volunteers who make a difference in Europe. During Pastor Sjaak's last visit on his ordination day on October 25, the abbot of the monastery, Bishop Donato, gave him a medal with the request to give it to someone within his circle.

Donato was in Wervershoof for his ordination in 1986 and with the founding of Brasili-Ja. Pastor Sjaak told him that this group still exists and now makes a worldwide difference. It is "logical " that this red box goes to the secretary of the Foundation ….. It is a modest international sign of "Thank You" and appreciation for the secretary and for everything the foundation has been doing for so many years. The best thing was the loud applause from the people in the church when the medal was awarded to Kees.

Are we on the right track?

In the meeting on 31 October we invited Sara Kinsbergen to exchange ideas with us about the ins and outs of our foundation. Sara works at Radboud University in Nijmegen as a development sociologist and does research into Small Private Initiatives and knows how to make a difference. It was an impressive, sometimes confronting, but always positive evening.

Martijn put it as follows: “What I always secretly thought was confirmed last night: we are a unique, close-knit and colourful collection of people with enthusiasm and commitment, who find it important to do something for the people around us. I experienced  last night as inspiring, enlightening and sometimes confronting (in a positive and pleasant way, by the way)."

Goodbye

During our annual BBQ we said goodbye to Lonneke vd Gulik and Esther van Velzen. For years they have been committed to our foundation and we are very grateful to them for that. Fortunately both have promised to continue to help if required.

Sjaak de Boer:
“I would like to thank Esther and Lonneke for their many years of dedication and creative energy that they have given to Auxilia. The team is what it is thanks to the volunteers. Thanks to all the cooperation, many beautiful things have been achieved. The fact that the working group has been around for 33 years says a lot about the charity and the atmosphere that it is based on. I am extremely proud of the fact that Auxilia is still a name that brings a smile to people, without scandals or fraud. In today's society that is special in itself”.

For a purpose - June 2019

Wonderful news from the Netherlands. Last weeks the schools "de Schelp" and "de Werenfridus" from Wervershoof (Netherlands), have been working hard to collect money to fund the current and upcoming projects from our organization. They've been raising money in different creative ways. In cooperation with different shop owners from Wervershoof, a Bingo has been held. People could enjoy the evening while enjoying the homemade cupcakes and cookies. They completely filled a transport van with returnable bottles which have been refunded at the supermarket. Some kids been walking from house to house, to do chores, and all this to help us and Nepal with current and future projects.

Big thanks to Auxilia-Brasili-ja. Auxilia-Brasili-Ja is an organisation based in Werversoof (Netherlands), who supports small organisations, to achieve the ‘Mileniumgoals’, set by 189 countries around the world. For more information see link: http://www.auxilia-brasili-ja.nl/
Together with Wouter de Groot, they’ve been to the schools, to hold presentations about our organization and out projects in Nepal. The raised money have been doubled by Auxilia-Brasili-Ja which set the amount on a beautiful 6318,50 Euro's! The amount that the kids raised is amazing, deep respect.

We can be proud as organization, for there is so much support for our projects, from so many different parts of the world.
Big thanks to all the donors and sponsors, to trust and believe in our organization and projects. Also the people who we haven't mentioned in this message. Every small amount is worth a lot in a country like Nepal. We will make sure that the money will be used well.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Vastenactie Primary Schools Wervershoof

Every year, primary schools De Schelp and Werenfridus organize an action. This year during Lent. The proceeds of this promotion will go to Auxilia this year! We would like to donate the amount that is collected by the children from both schools to the organization "For a Purpose". Originally from Belgium, this organization builds, where necessary, "earthquake-resistant buildings", such as schools and community spaces.
