Labour of love - Fokke + NL helps Yazidis

Text:

‘People who bring things in have their own stories to tell’

Fokke de Jong is collecting goods that can help the Yazidi community to get through the winter. He became a charity worker quite by chance. He sent Wahhab, a Yasidi living in Arnhem, a tweet after watching a documentary on TV. The 19-year-old asked him straightaway if he would like to help. So now De Jong is collecting blankets, shoes, warm clothes, pots and pans for a refugee camp in northern Iraq. ‘The winters can be very cold there.’ Got something useful to spare?
