The Dutch National Foundation for Peace, Freedom and Veteran Care (vfonds) supports a variety of projects aiming to support peace and freedom within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
The vfonds’ mission is:
- to create awareness and respect for uniformed personnel and veterans who have been involved in peace operations anywhere in the world; In addition to military veterans, the vfonds also regards former officers of police and fire brigades as her target groups.
- to keep the memory of the Second World War alive by commemorating the victims, honouring the Veterans and celebrating peace and freedom.
Within the Kingdom of the Netherlands and throughout the world over 3900 war monuments, museums and commemoration centers form a reminder of conflicts and peace operations in which the Netherlands was involved. They serve to keep the memory of wartime alive; a cause which the vfonds supports.
- to support peace, democracy and the rule of (international) law.
Simultaneous to keeping the memories of wartime alive, the vfonds invests in projects of which young generations are the most important target group, aiming to create awareness for the achievement of peace and democracy.
