2020 was een dramatisch jaar voor Mineke Foundation. Covid-19 heeft ons, net als velen anderen, hard geraakt. De Liberiaanse economie stond er al zeer slecht voor. Covid-19 heeft de situatie nog verder verslechterd. De Liberiaanse overheid sloot de grenzen en kondigde een lockdown af. Dit resulteerde in schaarste van allerlei producten, stijgende prijzen, het verlies van banen en van inkomen, kortom een grote economische malaise.

Joanne Noordink Foundation
Joanne Noordink Foundation. General information.
Joanne’s work focused our work on the support of children and our project was called “Joanne’s Children in Uganda”. However, as we extended our activities in the course of the years, we discovered that we needed a more formal basis for our activities, resulting in the Joanne Foundation.
The way the Joanne Foundation operates is characterized by keywords like: small, controllable, communicative, honest, reliable and transparent.
Our main objective is taking care of the children included in our program and to pay their tuition until the moment they have obtained a vocational certificate. This will enable them to find a job and become self-reliant. The foundation does not want the children to become dependent on its help, we support them until they are able to take care of themselves.
