Photo's De Spetse Hoeve, Groningen, Holland

Fire alarm installation
Last month we were able to donate 2,500 euro's to Teen Challenge De Spetse Hoeve, Groningen, in Holland. The money was desperately needed because they had to bring the fire safety system on the old farm up to code; orders of the fire department.

Because we are currently not in Holland we asked the directors Stephan & Marianne Barendse to send us some pictures of the work that is being done. We are happy to share 'm with you. Isn't it fun to see your donations at work?

Installation of lightning protection system
The checking of the excisitng fire alarm installation alone costs 750 euro's. They also had a lightning protection system installed on the roof, quite a job as you can see on the photo's.

Teen Challenge De Spetse Hoeve offers 24-hour help for men with all kind of addictions, there are currently 13 men in the residential program. You can check their website HERE and use Google translate if needed. Haha, let us know how that turned out for you.

If you have a friend or family member that is fighting addiction and wants to be free, please contact a Teen Challenge near you! It is often a matter of life and death.

As for us, we are happy that we were able to help them with this financial need and we sure hope we can be of service again in 2012!

PS: The gifts thermometer for Steve & Barbara (ICF), Ljubljana, Slovenia has risen to 2,100 euro's... almost there!
