Coffee Groups

We have created five ‘Coffee Groups’ on Facebook for different parts of The Netherlands. Both refugees and locals can post an introduction message and invite each other for a coffee. We believe that one simple cup of coffee can be basis for the key piece of information that makes a real difference in the life of a refugee.
