On New Year’s Eve, a walk-in afternoon was held in the Dorpskerk in Dinxperlo. It was a pleasant bustle with a lot of attention for felt artworks and other beautiful things. There was music by organ and trumpet, there was coffee, tea, glühwein and an ‘oliebol’ (Dutch food tradition at New Year’s eve), and the collection during the service was also intended for charity: the eye care project of Christien and Derk Jan te Kiefte in Ndegeya. The total proceeds were 860 euros.

The Joanne Foundation is very happy that many residents of Ndegeya will soon be able to be helped with good glasses.
