Laptops to Drente

On May 29, our Open Huis voor Oekraïne Foundation visited the province of Drenthe, where, thanks to our sponsor Worldline, it handed over 6 laptops to Ukrainian refugees.

The Dutch jokingly call Drenthe a “post-apocalyptic desert” because there are almost no large cities, very few people scattered in small villages and mostly private estates. Drenthe ranks 10th out of 12 in terms of the population among all the provinces in the Netherlands.

Nevertheless, Ukrainian refugees like it there, because it reminds them a lot of their homeland: nature with a lot of forests and meadows, homes with thatched roofs and white walls, and old houses, just like their grandmother used to have. And also it is very peaceful. Here, no one is in a hurry, unlike in big cities like Amsterdam or Rotterdam.

Even far from home, our people maintain their hospitality and sincerity. This time we were treated to a homemade apple pie. Hospitality is another inseparable part of us, like love for the land and our children.
