The weather in the Netherlands can be very cold and very wet, especially for those coming from the Middle East. Members of the church took it upon themselves to organise a clothing store for refugees from which any person who registers can receive free seasonal clothing year round. The clothing is donated from members of the church as well as other sources. We were able to assist them in providing the basic materials for setting-up, storing and displaying these clothes.
Alongside of the handing out and receiving of clothing, a small group of refugees also volunteer at the clothing store, helping others find the clothing they need as well as cooking lunch for anyone who is there to shop or to volunteer.
