On saturday June 17, we as locals and newcomers, old and young people, new and old neighbours will walk the 10 kilometres together during ‘Nacht van de Vluchteling’ in Amsterdam.
We are not refugees anymore, we have become each other’s neighbours!
Doetank PEER and local community New Neighbours are teaming up to be part of ‘Nacht van de Vluchteling‘, a charity walk where we raise money to support and help refugees who are still on the run and to get people from different backgrounds together with one goal: a movement that strives towards better human rights, hope and solidarity with our brothers and sisters who are still fleeing for the right to live! Are you walking with us?
Thousands of people have been forced to flee from their country to rebuild a life here in the Netherlands that they can call home again. We are not refugees anymore – we have become each other’s neighbours. But even now many people still flee and millions of people live in poor conditions far from the place that is their home. We feel a responsibility and an obligation to help each other no matter your background or on which side of the border you are. Support and join a movement of old and new neighbours who walk together to raise money for people who are still on the run & to connect with each other.
Joining is easy! Join our team called “Charity Walk of Solidarity” on the website of ‘Nacht van de vluchteling’ and walk with us! The more, the better! Bring your people with you and meet new neighbours.
Not able to walk, but want to support us? We set ourselves the goal to raise €1000 that goes directly to Stichting Vluchteling. Sponsor our team and spread the word!
Follow us on our event page to be updated. There’s more to come!
For us it’s not just about raising money and getting back to our normal lives. This Charity Walk is meant to create new friendships between old and new neighbours to exchange and learn from each other’s cultures, backgrounds and stories. We want to take the concept of Nacht van de Vluchteling further and show how integration is something that we all play a part in.
Our team exists out of a lot of different people: activists, students, newcomers (former refugees), old and young people who all have one goal: together we show that no matter where you come from, your dreams, goals and rights are valid!
Datum: Saturday June 17th
