Last Christmas we organised Open Crib, to help refugees and newcomers in Holland expand their social network. We asked people in Holland to open their homes for new citizens, and invite them for a Christmas dinner of New Years Eve party. With the help of Ben & Jerry’s, Refugee StartForce and TakeCare BnB we made it a succesful campaign.
Within a week almost 200 Dutch homes opened their doors, and 178 homes did have newcomers over for dinner or a party. Many of those still see each other today! So asking Muslims in Europe this Eid to open their homes was a logical next step.
