Fundraising bike ride

A Belgian family (Arend, Mireille and their two children) biked from Thailand to Shanghai in China. During this interesting trip full of new experiences, the children were taught by their parents. They also visited Laos on the way.

They did fundraising for this trip, to collect money for our foundation. Their trip has come to an end, and they collected a total amount of € 2.433,86!

The fundraising was organized through the Belgian non-profit organization Vzw O.S.J.-steunfonds. Just like us, they are proud as a peacock of this sporty family. They wrote us following letter:

“Vzw O.S.J.-Steunfonds (Belgium) expresses their gratitude towards the whole team of Help Laos in the Netherlands for the nice and constructive cooperation during the fundraising bike ride by Mireille, Arend and their two children from Thailand to Shanghai. They wish to thank the sportsmen and -women for the extraordinary result they biked together. They also trust that the collected amount will be entirely used for building new classrooms for the local school in Phonsaad“.

They can surely count on that. We will keep you all updated about the construction of the classrooms.
