ADRIAAN KOKBoard Member & Treasurer
It was in November 2017 when I saw Alaa for the first time in an interview on Social Media. He looked and felt like one of those few people you want to be with – pure, honest, brave, a beautiful soul. By then I didn’t know anything about Happy Caravan. A year later we met for the first time in his house in Monnickendam in the Netherlands, and he told me how he started his Happy Caravan. I couldn’t be more impressed by his story. Going back to Greece, living in a camp to start to help children. He didn’t have any resources and giving up his own social support program in the Netherlands, he just did it!
After we travelled together to Greece and visited the Happy Caravan schools I was overwhelmed. What he created with his team is goodness in every sense of the word. Alaa and his team members have created happiness for so many children. Happy Caravan brings essential change for those that are in need the most, children, our children!
Happy Caravan is an example how to give help in the best possible way. I feel honored to be part of this beautiful organization. It is just love.
