Support my charity walk for War Child and help children who don't have the privilege of growing up in a war-free country. I am determined to make a difference and improve their lives. Moreover, I proudly continue my grandfather's legacy by carrying on this march.

Every day, I enjoy the freedom and safety I experience in my life. Unfortunately, this is not the case for millions of children trapped in conflict areas around the world. They face violence, loss, and fear, stealing their childhood. But together, we can give these children hope and a better future.

I will do the work and will walk 120 km in a 4-day charity walk to raise awareness and funds for War Child. With your support, we can ensure that children in war zones receive psychosocial support, education, and protection. Every donation counts and brings us closer to our goal of €3000. I would be ecstatic if we could reach that goal. 

By continuing my grandfather's tradition, I hope to not only make a difference in the lives of these children but also inspire others to do the same. Together, we can have a powerful impact on the lives of these children and help them create a future full of hope and opportunities.

Join me on this journey of compassion and solidarity. Let's prove that even a small action can make a significant difference. Support my charity walk today and help these children have a brighter future.

Hey everyone! We did it! The 4 Days Walk of the World was the most challenging yet fulfilling experience ever! Four days of walking, 30 kilometers each day, and we made it through! 🚶‍♂️💪   Remember when I shared my decision to take part in this incredible walking event around Nijmegen, Netherlands? Well, it was tough, but we were determined to raise funds for a cause we care about deeply – WarChild.   During the four days, we had some beautiful encounters with fellow walkers, all with their unique stories and reasons for participating. One encounter that truly touched our hearts was with Ronald, a kind-hearted soul who was doing his own fundraising for WarChild through a cycling event. We shared our experiences, and exchanged tips on how to keep going when the going gets tough. It was amazing to meet someone as passionate about the cause as we were!   With the support of my family, friends, and my awesome brother's promotional efforts, we set off on this endurance journey. The walking days were hard, and we battled blisters and exhaustion, but the cheering crowds kept us going.   But here's the best part – with your generous donations, we reached our goal of €3,000 and even surpassed it! All for WarChild, an organization that helps kids in need. Thank you all for your amazing support!   The 4 Days Walk taught us the power of unity, determination, and giving back. Together, we made a real impact.   To all the kids out there, remember, dreams do come true when you have the right support and determination. Keep believing in yourselves and making a difference!   With heartfelt gratitude, Joris
