Princess Annette Opens Care & Housing Project
Today Princess Annette of Orange-Nassau returned to the town where she grew up, to open a housing & care complex for multible disabled children in Dorst (municipalty of Oosterhout).
The princess, who rarely has public duties and lives a life out of the limelight in Amsterdam, was invited by Ton and Linda van der Veer, two inhabitants of Dorst. This couple took the initiative to start this small scale project for multiple disabled children between 9 and 16 years old. They started Foundation “Pim” , to finance this house which can host eight children from the cities of Oosterhout and Breda. The 10 year old Pim, son of the couple, will be living in this house.
According to Frans Huijsmans, of foundation Pim, they especially asked a princess from Oosterhout to open the project, but also because princess Annette works with handicapped children herself.Filed under The Netherlands
