DAME 2017 proceeds for sailing trips for seriously ill children
Joint initiative between Sailing Kids Foundation and Dutch Childhood Cancer Parent Organisation
Each year the registration fees for the DAME Design Award are donated to a charity. This year the METSTRADE Exhibition Committee has decided that the proceeds will go to a joint initiative between Sailing Kids Foundation (SK) and the Dutch Childhood Cancer Parent Organisation (VOKK) who organise sailing trips for young patients and survivors of childhood cancer or other diseases.
Sailing Kids Foundation
Sailing Kids Foundation, which was established in 2006, is a Dutch government-approved public charity that aims to organise all-inclusive sailing trips for seriously ill children and their families in order to provide a period of rest in the daily care for health.
The Dutch Childhood Cancer Parent Organization (VOKK)
The Dutch Childhood Cancer Parent Organisation (VOKK), founded in 1987, is an association of parents for parents to support and help young patients as well as survivors of childhood cancer and their families in times of stress and anxiety, as well as thereafter.
