2016 DRC Windows & Doors

2016 DRC Windows & Doors

During the 2015 earthquakes and (still ongoing) subsequent aftershocks the DRC-building suffered great structural damage that has since been repaired. One of the things still to be done are repairing/replacing broken doors and windows that have since been broken, jamming and don’t close properly. It is not safe, it has a bad influence on the inside climate (damp and mould) and it doesn’t look good.

The solution is repair if possible and replace if necessary. The aim is to have safe windows and doors that close properly and thus a better inside climate.

The work is done in September 2016.

4 Smiling Faces

Smiling Faces is the abbreviation for the Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces Foundation, that was started by Tjitske Weersma in 2008. We improve the living conditions of children in children’s homes in developing countries with specific, small-scale projects in which they are central. We also support them when they have to leave those homes at 18 and have no safety net to fall back on. With us they come first. With our help they’ll go so much further, are they able to make their own choices and can they make shape their own lives.
