A loving home for More children


Saturday 10 July was the last day of the Casa Nadina Cycling Event.
Danny Kommer left his current residence 'Ghimbav in Romania' on 15 June to cycle to his birthplace Heerde in 25 days by bicycle.
The aim of this action was to collect sponsor money for the necessary renovation and expansion of the Casa Nadina family home. A total of € 180,000 is required for this.
Three abandoned children are now permanently taken care of in this house. The objective of the Obed Foundation is to take care of approximately 8 to 9 children permanently. Danny and his wife Rianne have been living in Romania for more than 7 years now and have 3 children of their own.
At the time of Danny's arrival and the ceremony on stage, the counter stood at €51,431,--. A very nice amount. In the meantime, the amount has increased further, but we are not there yet!
Danny has delivered an exceptional performance with this promotion. Before that he was hardly on his bike! Through willpower and purpose, he has had to endure rain, high temperatures, mountains and wind. Alderman Nienhuis presented Danny with the check on stage with the amount collected at that time.
It would be fantastic if this amount is further supplemented in the near future. You can visit the website of the Obed Foundation and transfer your contribution quite easily. Donations can also be easily and directly transferred to the account number of Stichting Obed:
NL89 RAIL 0302413995.

Thank you very much on behalf of the board.
D. Verlaan chairman.

In the video below, Danny and Rianne explain why they started a family home.

After a successful donation campaign, the family home became the property of the foundation in 2019. Now that the property is owned, we can work on further realizing the vision. Three children are currently taken into the family through foster care. The wish is to be able to expand this further to 6 to 8 children. In addition, we also notice that it is necessary to prepare children for a situation where they will live on their own. This independence training requires spaces in which this can be put into practice. For this we are now starting fundraising for € 180,000.
