The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs supports 3FM Serious Request and their campaign to stop violence against women and girls in armed conflict
Join us for an international fund raising and Christmas carol singing at the Plein in The Hague on December 24 at 13.00
3FM Serious Request is a nationwide Dutch charity initiative collecting money for ICRC projects. This year, they support victims of violence against women and girls in conflict situations under the motto “hands of our girls”.
Help us contribute to 3FM Serious Request by getting together the international and diplomatic community of The Hague in an international choir to sing international Christmas carols – including a multilingual version of “Silent Night”.
We hope to welcome you all and to combine our voices to raise awareness and money for the cause. This initiative will only be successful with your active involvement and that of your family, colleagues, and friends. The more voices the merrier!
Worldwide one in five women is sexually abused in her life. Sexual violence is a humiliating weapon in conflict. Reintegration of victims is important both from a humanitarian point of view and because women often stand at the basis of recovery.
In the framework of Serious Request, three DJs live in a glass house for six days on a juice-only diet. The Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Lilianne Ploumen, closed the doors of the house on December 18. Bert Koenders, the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs will visit the DJs on the evening of the 24th.
