Aartsenfruit Kids Foundation


Aartsenfruit Kids Foundation

AKF was founded to celebrate the 100th anniversary of aartsenfruit, a fruit and vegetable import company. Jack and Hellen Aartsen established the foundation in 2007 to be able to make a vital contribution to the happiness and well-being of children. Children have a right to love, security, good personal development and a healthy future. Something which not every child is fortunate enough to experience.
