ShowerPower

For English scroll down please

WOW!

Eυχαριστώ πολύ για τις προσπάθειές σας!
Een organisatie als ShowerPower overeind houden is veel werk. Gelukkig weten we ons gesteund door een nog steeds groeiende groep vrijwilligers die in de achtergrond doen wat ze kunnen. Dank daarvoor, allemaal!
Vandaag willen we één van deze vrijwilligers met nadruk bedanken- Jurrie Eilers. Hij is onze webmaster en zorgt er voor dat alles wat met de website te maken heeft van een leien dakje gaat. Hoe ingewikkeld en gek onze vraag ook is: met ongelooflijke snelheid vertaalt Jurrie alle vragen adequaat en ook nog eens mooi en foutloos naar content.
Op eigen initiatief voegde hij aan de website een Franse en Duitse versie toe. En allemaal vrijwillig, terwijl het ook zijn werk is.
Jurrie en zijn vrouw Angela wonen en werken op Kreta. Jurrie als websitebouwer en webmaster, Angela als gids bij wandeltochten. Dat is handig voor ons, want daardoor kent hij Griekenland goed.
Vandaag sta jij in ons zonnetje, Jurrie, heel erg veel dank voor je inzet!

WOW!
Eυχαριστώ πολύ για τις προσπάθειές σας!
Keeping an organisation like ShowerPower afloat is a lot of work. Fortunately, we are supported by a still growing group of volunteers who do whatever they can in the background. Thanks for that, everyone!
Today, we would like to express our thanks to one of the volunteers in particular - Jurrie Eilers. Jurrie is our webmaster and sees that everything related to the website runs smoothly. No matter how complicated and crazy our question is, Jurrie translates all questions adequately, beautifully and flawlessly into content, with incredible speed.
On his own initiative he added a French and German version to the website. And voluntarily, while it is also his job.
Jurrie and his wife Angela live and work in Crete. Jurrie as website builder and webmaster, Angela as a walking tour guide. That is handy for us, because it means he knows Greece well.
Today you are in our spotlight, Jurrie, thank you very much for your commitment!

Question:
Do we have some experience with rain and tents?
Answer:
Yes, we have been seeing water flowing through the tents for four years now
Question:
do we know how to prevent this?
Answer:
yes, by placing the tents on pallets.
Question:
why were they not placed during construction?
Answer:
because the 'regulators' never look ahead and the rest dare not say anything
Question:
who are unnecessarily victims?
Answer:
our guests

Look what happened today.

Dear ShowerPower followers,
The EU promised “no more Morias" @johanssonylva, but it just helped build Moria 2.0 on Lesvos.
The so-called long-term solution for migration and asylum just presented by the @EuropeanCommission is once again designed to trap people in camps at borders and on islands @ursulavonderleyen ُ
This approach has proved to be a political, humanitarian and moral failure.
An unprecedented and growing alliance of 430+ organisations, groups, Members of European Parliament, politicians as well as 135.000+ individuals are all saying: enough is enough! Radical change is needed, now. Join the movement, sign and share the petition: www.change.org/firemoriacamp

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

The fires of September 8 and 9, which meant the definitive end of refugee camp Moria on Lesvos as it was, also ended definitively the activities of ShowerPower in its old form.

From the end of 2017 until the beginning of March 2020 the volunteers of ShowerPower received more than 20.000 women and children in the safe house on Lesvos. Doing so, the mission of the foundation took shape; returning dignity to people who have to find a way to survive in camps under inhumane conditions.

As from March 2020, the safe house has been temporarily closed as a consequence of:
a) the reactionary violence against refugees and volunteers and
b) by the lockdown because of COVID 19. From that moment on ShowerPower financially supports mainly Greek NGOs who are still operational.

After the fires, a new, closed camp has been set up in a hurry. The people who stay there are not allowed to leave the camp and NGOs are not or only sparingly admitted. In addition, COVID 19 is still playing an important role and ShowerPower does not want to be the cause of a further spread of the virus.

In the meantime, we started to beef-up our financial support of local NGOs that are able to deliver some relief to the trapped refugees. WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.

At the start of September, the foundation went looking for alternatives to give shape to her mission after it had become clear that the old construction did not work anymore. From that moment on, the board has been considering legal actions to denounce the European refugee policy with an independent judge. The aim is to test the policy, which leads to dehumanisation, to existing laws, international treaties and agreements. Because: enough is enough.

ShowerPower is a small foundation that is mainly good at being nice to our fellow human beings. The legal way is something else, it is a complex way and a matter of patience, which eventually will serve our mission. The field of action has changed and therefore it is wise to seek support from experienced experts, lawyers, strategists, communication experts and back-office specialists.

ShowerPower is supported by a large network of donors, former volunteers, sympathisers and fellow NGOs who all agree: enough is enough. They will help us to create large public support and to acquire the necessary funds.

The fires in Moria have not changed our mission: the restoration of human dignity, but they have made definite our new form. The board considers ShowerPower’s new course as inevitable, irreversible and serving the mission.

BRAVO. This is the only way. With my full support and sympathy. 🤝

Wat een dappere beslissing! Ik heb een geweldige tijd bij jullie gehad in 2018 samen met Rinnie Kooistra. Het was een onvergetelijke ervaring, wat een bijzonder project. Ontzettend jammer dat het zo moet eindigen, maar heel veel respect voor jullie besluit ❤️❤️

Heel jammer maar heel begrijpelijk dat het ophoudt te bestaan. Het zal voor alle vrouwen en kinderen die er “safe” waren én voor alle vrouwen uit allerlei landen die er gewerkt hebben een bijzondere ervaring geweest zijn❣️ Dank daarvoor❣️ Héél veel succes 💪🏼

Great idea ❤️ All the best for you 🌷

Had graag nog eens met jullie organisatie mee gedaan. Helaas.

Ja, dit was zeker een onvergetelijke ervaring Marijke Dijkstra Ik sluit mij aan bij Marijke. Echt jammer voor al die vrouwen en kinderen♥️

Dapper besluit! Bedankt voor jullie prettige samenwerking en jullie geweldige teams. GO for it

Goedzo!!!

Weer staan de mensen van het @Maartenscollege in Haren klaar.
Zij horen tot degenen die ons bij de start van het ShowerPower Project een duw in de rug gaven.
Dank jullie wel lieve mensen!We gaan los!

Samen met leerlingen en collega's van het Maartenscollege Haren starten we op 1 oktober: "In Actie voor Moria".

Prioriteit 1: bewustwording creëren bij jongeren: praten met elkaar (met oa Pieter Wittenberg) en nadenken over wat je vindt, weet en denkt te weten.

Prioriteit 2: geld inzamelen voor noodhulp.

Met speciale dank aan Gertjan Koffie, die continue klaarstaat om mee te denken en aan/bij te dragen. Dankjewel Gertjan, voor je mooie hart!

Dankjewel CT Heida, voor je muzikale bijdrage op 5 oktober, echt supertof dat je erbij bent en de actie ondersteunt!

En dank ook aan ShowerPower, Attika Human Support, Joost Poppe Jan Rentema , CT Heida en Wouter Levinga! Allemaal prachtige hartjes bij elkaar!!!
