On November 11, 2014, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands arrived at the Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht to participate in the launch of the Oranje Fonds new campaign, Maatjes Gezocht (Buddies Wanted).
According to RVD, Maatjes Gezocht are:
“…volunteers who offer individuals support and friendship. That may include helping those with learning new skills, the acquisition of new knowledge or by providing social contact. There are language buddies, mentors to support young people in school, buddies for people with mental illnesses, and buddies to help people network and make new friends.”
After today’s launch His Majesty viewed the Museum Catharijneconvent’s new exhibition, Ik Geef om Jou! Naastenliefde Door de Eeuwen Heen.
