About us...

Karmel International Foundation is a Netherlands based, internationally operating charity organisation. We provide structural help to the people in the former east-block countries.

About 90 volunteers from Enschede and its neighbourhood help our activities in our headquarters, and 300 volunteers support us in Hungary and Romania. Their activity is the basis of the structural help we have been providing in the last 15 years, in the form of projects.

Karmel's main power lies in voluntary work. From the duch city Enschede and the surroundings about 90 volunteers, and about 300 volunteers in Hungary and Romania help the work of the foundation every day.

Karmel International's activity is based on religious background, it is an evangelical mission according to the Bible. The name Karmel International is based on the story of Elia on the Carmel Mountain as it is described in the Book of Kings.
