Delft MaMa is contributing to the Refugee welcome event ‘Welkom Hier‘ on Saturday 17th September at the Theater De Veste by providing children’s activities for the children of the refugee families, as well as any children from the Delft community who are attending this free event.
Please come along to the event with your families if you would like to contribute to making these new members of the Delft community feel welcomed!
We have had a great show of support with volunteers offering their time on the day. Miriam Langford and Nina Bogerd are the Delft MaMa team lears on this project. We now need some other small things for the day to go smoothly. If you have been wondering how to contribute, but could not offer your time on the day, one of these requests on the list below might be for you. You might even be able to just add 5 EUR to your grocery shopping this week and help us a great deal.
Below is a list of items we would like to ask people to donate. Some items might even be things you have in the house, left over from children’s birthday parties. Some are simple things you could pick up for us at the grocery store, Hema, Action, Zeeman etc. for 5 EUR or less. If you can’t contribute shopping but want to make a small donation instead, you can donate by bank transfer to Delft Mama with the reference ‘Welkom Hier’.
If you are able to contribute, please email Miriam Langford at miriam DOT a DOT langford AT gmail DOT com to let her know what you want to contribute (so we don’t end up with hundreds of packets of baby wipes and no stickers or bubbles…. We need stickers and bubbles…. Have we mentioned stickers and bubbles??)

I would like to contribute with my time but I don't know how. I have a 7 months old son who will be with me all the time so I might not be very handy. On the other side I can maybe contribute by chatting with refugees? Especially if they are from Syria or other Arabian countries. Will this be needed?
Hi Asmaa, sorry for the late reply, but thank you for reaching out! You can always contact Nina Bogerd and Miriam Langford with your questions what you could do. They are very kind and you can find them on Facebook too. They will be very happy with your help! There are usually more children around of all ages, so keeping them busy is always a big need; not to mention the language barrier - you could help with that for sure!
