On the 17th September Delft Mama will be contributing to ‘Welkom Hier‘, a welcome event for the approximately 500 refugees, from diverse backgrounds, who have settled in the Delft area within the past couple of years. The event will be a festival, an event for the refugees to learn about useful local initiatives and organizations, and an opportunity for local residents to come and share ideas with each other. There will be information stalls from many organizations, presentations, debates and stage performances.
On the day, between 13:00 and 17:00, at the Theater de Veste in Delft, Delft Mama is providing activities for the refugee children, whose ages range between 0 and 12 years. Volunteers from the Delft Mama community will be assisting with crafts, games and other activities for the children (with their parents). If you would like to be involved and offer your time either on the day or for preparations beforehand, we are still gratefully accepting all help offered. To volunteer, please contact Miriam Langford at miriam DOT a DOT langford AT gmail DOT com.
