Hand4addicts: Lending a helping hand


Hand4Addicts is a foundation consisting of a group of volunteers who help the addicted in the city of Oranjestad. The help they provide is by giving them warm meals, clean clothes, a chance to bathe and a haircut once a month. This way they can show to these people that they are still part of the community. The foundation wants to change the way our community views and interacts with the people who struggle with addiction. They are also someone’s friend or family member and many times their basic needs are neglected. This is where Hand4additcs comes in.

The foundation is a non-profit organization that does not receive any help from the government. They are completely dependent on donations_ with most being done from our everyday people. They welcome all sorts of donations such as hygiene products, clothing, shoes, towels etc.

March 18th, edition

Their next event called “March 18th Edition” will be held on Sunday, March 14th, 2021 at the parking lot behind mango in Downtown mainstreet, from 10am till 2pm.

For this event they are in need of your cooperation. They want to provide their clients with a warm meal consisting of some local food and dessert. Beverages, cups, ice are of great help. They also need clothes (shirts, shorts, underwear, socks, shoes) for their clients. If you are a barber and willing to help their clients with a haircut, lend them a helping hand. All donations are welcome.

Being able to see them ‘grateful’ for a meal, shower, clean clothes and a haircut is priceless!
