About Stichting Kieteman

The Kieteman Foundation was established in December 2015 by Floris and Vivien Brockmeier in memory of their son, Kiet.
Although Kiet was not allowed to experience his first birthday, his smile is indelible and forever unforgettable.
The purpose of the foundation is to keep his smile alive on other children’s faces.
They approach children who live in difficult circumstances through contacts with social workers, the Food Bank and various other social and welfare organizations.

– Important fact: all gifts are used 100% for the children we want to help.
