Do you like baking, and want to contribute to a good cause? Join the Bake Off!
Show us your baking skills, bring delicious food, and give money to a good cause. The Bake Off is organized in collaboration with Red Cross, a student-run organization who raises money for Serious Request at the moment. With the proceeds of Serious Request 2017, Red Cross aid workers trace missing children, restore contact with their families and bring them back home.
In December, NPO 3FM will collect money to reunite parents with their children. More than four million family members worldwide have lost each other after a natural disaster, like extreme drought, flooding, and earthquakes, or in conflict areas such as Nigeria.
Parents can submit a search request to the Red Cross in a developing country. Emergency workers can search actively there for their family members.
When the family member is found, the Red Cross ensures that the member will be in contact with their family again. After this, the Red Cross brings the family member back to his or her family. This is a long and difficult progress and sometimes takes months or even years. The Red Cross is constantly looking for sustainable solutions to reduce the number of missing persons worldwide. This is how the organization is working hard for the importance of contact maintenance.
You can help the Red Cross by donating money during the Serious Request week here in Wageningen. This week is filled with different activities during the day and in the evening, starting on the 27th of November!
