Help Ons – Please Give Us a Hand

Give a little or a lot – Alle beetjes helpen

The story of de Nederlanders in Nieuw Zeeland, is a story worth telling. So let's enable our kids and grandchildren to find out more about the unique experience of Mamma en Pappa, Oma en Opa. Over time, we will add today’s stories as well. The footprint of the Dutch community is an integral part of the cultural fabric of the nation.  

With your help, Oranjehof can keep nurturing those Dutch Connections - with each other, with our cultural heritage here (ons erfgoed, heerlijk eten), and with Nederland - taal, cultuur en kunst.

Join a Colourful Art Mural!

Right now - we have a worthwhile initiative on the go.  Add your name to a 50m spectacular Art Mural – on the Memorial Wall, on the Oranjehof side of our building. Make a Donation, and your name goes on our Memorial Wall.
