Lowland supports charities
We have supported the following charities for some time:
Children have the right to grow up in peace. Free from fear and violence. But above all: free from war. War Child creates safe places in conflict-affected areas where children can play, are able to continue their education and where they learn how to deal with their traumatic experiences.

Kika (Kinderen Kankervrij) raises funds for the benefit of seven children’s cancer centres in the Netherlands: Emma Kinderziekenhuis AMC Amsterdam, UMC Groningen Koningin Beatrix Kinderkliniek, Willem-Alexander Kinder- en Jeugdcentrum Leiden, UMC St. Radboud Kinderziekenhuis Nijmegen, ErasmusMC – Sophia Kinderziekenhuis in Rotterdam, VU Medical Center in Amsterdam, and Wilhelmina Kinderziekenhuis Utrecht. The funds go towards research aimed at expediting the availability of therapies at these centres, in order to better treat and heal childhood cancers. Information: www.kika.nl.
The Kidney Foundation
The Kidney Foundation has been working for more than 40 years to provide kidney patients with an improved quality of life. The foundation supports research into prevention, innovative treatments and a better life for kidney patients. Information: www.nierstichting.nl.
The Bart Foundation
The Bart Foundation was established following the death in 2002 of the Dutch TV personality Bart de Graaff and helps severely sick or handicapped young people to realise their ambitions. By stimulating them to develop their talents, they will be eventually be able to produce and achieve sustainably and independently by, for instance, starting their own companies or getting an education. It is specifically these young people who deserve our help; because of their particular circumstances, they are forced to work even harder to make their dreams a reality.

NuStar NuHope Golf Classic
The goal of this golf tournament is to raise funds for the homeless.
Stichting Vrienden van Hospice de Waterlelie
A very enthusiastic group of people from Voorne-Putten in the Netherlands hopes to reach the summit of Mont Blanc on 29 August 2011. They are doing this for charity in support of Hospice de Waterlelie in Spijkenisse. The Friends of Hospice de Waterlelie foundation is the initiator of this expedition and they hope that by climbing Mont Blanc, they will raise the profile of the hospice and raise funds from sponsors in order to soften the blow of the coming cutbacks.
