Update 2020

Sunday 10th of January 2021

It has been a strange and hard Year for everyone, including me. All my travel and speaking plans were cancelled and it was time to be still and reflect on how to go forward and what's important in life. I realised to me my family and having a safe place is so important and many people in the world don't have that. In these covid times human trafficking and forced prostitution are still happening but are forced more out of sight and underground. It made me more determined to do my part in the fight against this horrible and evil crime.

The Red Alert company and it's ambassadors

Sunday 4th of March 2018

In October I started a social enterprise, which I registered at the Chamber of Commerce, so it's now official. This company will work with the Red Alert book, give presentations to schools, companies, groups, government, and police, raising awareness about injustice, human trafficking, and forced prostitution. It will raise money for organizations like Bright Fame and International Justice Mission, which work to free these sex slaves and victims of trafficking. It will also reach the women and men who are now in slavery and give them help and advice.

Bright Fame

Sunday 27th of November 2016

About five years ago I went to the Puur2 women’s event where I was the photographer. Esther Vorsterman van Oijen was a speaker there; I didn't know her at that time. I had had a dream in which God said: "You will work in the red light district.”

Schools and teenagers

Wednesday 23rd of November 2016

One of the things I really love doing is speaking in schools, and for teenage groups in churches and clubs; they are very vulnerable to the influences around them.

US navy

Wednesday 23rd of November 2016

A few weeks after someone from America had ordered Red Alert, I received a message from a man of the US navy. He had borrowed my book from the American buyer, and read it. In his message, he told me that the book made him cry, and his eyes were opened. He was shocked that so many women fell victim to human trafficking and were forced into prostitution. He had never realized this before. The man told me that when he was training as a navy cadet, they were encouraged to visit prostitutes when they visited ports in different countries, because it would help release any tension and frustration they had, and it would make them more relaxed. It was just a normal thing for them to do, to go and visit a prostitute. He had also visited women in Amsterdam’s red light district when his ship came to Holland.

De Haven

Tuesday 22nd of November 2016

I was invited to De Haven, in The Hague, to see the work this organization is doing with women in prostitution. When I was there, I was really impressed to see the love and passion Jessica, Jurriaan and their team had for these women. Their office, dining and living area, and kitchen were decorated with work the women do in therapy sessions and activities.
