A few years ago our storage and working area was destroyed by a fire. We do not like to remember those days. The first thing was to find a new place with a sufficient store house. In the mean time we had to receive and store new donations, pack new transports and those had to reach the people who were counting on them, because we could not let down those in need.
We found a commercial storehouse on the Twenteweg in Enschede. We rent this place now for EUR 30.000 per year. It is very difficult to raise this amount annually and this risks the future of Karmel. The Karmel Foundation can achive its goals with its small budget only if we could have our own building.
Therefore we organise an action: HELP!!!! WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!
Give us the chance to buy this building with your support. Only this way can we stay in this building and continue with supporting the Romanian and Hungarian people in serious need. In the name of the children, pensioners, ill and handicaped people we ask you to support us with any little amount you can afford. Our action waits for a reaction from you!
