About Angel’s Garden
Angel’s Garden is a young foundation established on 8 June 2007 and domiciled in
Purmerend (Netherlands). Our mission is to help handicapped adolescents and chronically ill children in Suriname who are falling between two stools. For these young people no day,
night, or weekend care is available. This makes them dependent on their families and restricts their social contacts. Angel’s Garden wants to provide a home for them to break the barriers of their social exclusion.
This annual Report is on the 16th of March 2015 approved by the board of Angel’s Garden.

June 18th, 2014 Ms. Glenda Uhlenbeek (employee of the neighborhood center E Wijks in Osdorp) has thrown a dinner, which was approved by the board of Angel’s Garden, for the
benefit of Angel’s Garden. Everyone could join this evening for a total of fifteen euros. It was a very lovely evening. Unfortunately, Ms. Glenda Uhlenbeek has used the donated sum of money, which was given to us by citizens who were supportive of the cause, for her own benefits. The board of Angel’s Garden has filed a complaint with the local authority, given the fact that the local authorities had granted Ms. Uhlenbeek a total of € 4000,- with the goal of organizing festivities during the Keti Koti festival. Today, almost a year has passed and the foundation still hasn’t seen any of the donated money. The board has taken necessary measures to make sure we still receive the donated money. This is not a pleasant experience for the foundation.We still thank all donators for supporting the project.
Thank to all citizens for there financial support. This support is much needed.
We have several applications, ready to get sent. The Maagdenhuis has officially agreed to financially support the organization with the construction of the project.
