book initiative in favour of SVVT

brieven naar de groene hel
Whilst Henk Krijnen was sent out to New Guinea by an oil company in 1982, his girlfriend got a job at the medical centre at the Lake Victoria in Tanzania. By means of many letters, they tell each other and the reader about their experiences and thoughts during their time apart. Stories of the countries and cultures are alternated by personal stories of meeting people, friendships, adventures and even a kidnapping once. It’s a personal, expressive story, told in a wide social-political context.” The book counts 332 pages and includes a range of colour supplement containing pictures. For more information: A printed version costs €21.95 and the e-book version €11.95. If you order this book from the website named above and mention SVVT in the comments section, you will make sure that 45% of the price goes to our foundation.
