On April 21st, ms Veendam will be in Manta. During this day, a large group of our crew will go to School Care San Jose in Manta loaded with a variety of supplies. School Care San José currently has 80 kids from a low economic background and is in dire need of the basics.
On this day, we, the Veendam crew, will go to this school and repair the roof, paint the building, fix plumbing, replace windows, install curtains, supply new beds, new linen and new school supplies.
The ultimate goal is to get over 100 crew to join us that day. Yesterday was the first day to sign up and we ended the day with 40 volunteers… We will definitely pass the 100 crew mark.
Guests on board the Veendam can support the project by donating school supplies.
Stayed tuned for regular updates on this important initiative.
The roof needs to be replaced.
We need new mattress pads.
We need new tables.
We need better beds.
