Fund raising for Haiti

De Samenwerkende Hulporganisaties (The Cooperating Aid agencies) in the Netherlands have so far raised 10.6 million euros for Haiti. This was reported on Radio 555. The show began at 6.00 and lasts until 9:00 yesterday evening on tv.
Radio 555 is on Radio 2, 3FM, Radio Netherlands and the four commercial channels aim to collect money for earthquake victims in Haiti.
There was a fundraising for the victims of Haiti on four television channels yesterday evening from 8.30 to 10.00. It was participated by the Prime Minister, politicians, actors and actresses, artists and many more. Viewers can buy thirty seconds air time in which they can dance, rap, magic or whatever.
The amount collected on giro 555 was announced at the end of the program. Minister Koenders of Foreign Affairs doubles the amount. Money that comes after, is not doubled.
A very good initiative of the Dutch government to help other people.

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
