The Faridpur foundation supports the medical work (the Plastic Surgery Camps) of plastic surgeon Cees Spronk and his team in the city of Faridpur. They operate upon children and adults with severe burns and split lips. Since 2013 Doctors of the World has helped us to finance the Plastic Surgery Camps. The foundation also finances the Children’s Home in this place: the Holland Children House. All this is done for the poor in this region.
In 2010 it became clear that a separation between the ageing boys and girls was necessary. Besides, there is always a great demand for housing street children and orphans. That is why we have decided to extend the home with a fourth building for approximately 30 children, where this separation can also be realised.Read more ›
