Asylos Charitable Incorporated Organisation

Asylos is a global network of volunteers providing free of-charge Country of Origin Information (COI) research for lawyers helping people seeking international protection with their claim. Asylos works to ensure that people seeking asylum or undergoing similar legal procedures have access to crucial sources and data to substantiate their claim. We also train lawyers in COI research methods and review COI produced by governments and intergovernmental organisations. More information can be found on Asylos' website.

Kerk in Actie

We are the church in action: a worldwide community of people who believe. Who believe in God and in each other. A real church is an active church. We are the Protestant Church in the Netherlands in action: two million members (of 17 million habitants), over 1600 local congregations are active on behalf of their fellow men and women, near and far. No one is excluded. All are welcome. We are touched and inspired by Jesus Christ and the Bible’s call to take care of widows and orphans, prisoners and refugees. It is our calling to share what we have received.
