Today I witnessed one of the most amazing things ever: A young guy named Wijbe Abma, 21 years old, managing and distributing blankets to the poor in the suburbs of Aleppo. The way he works is amazing. With a group of highly trusted men he walks into the flats knocking on every door and checks their inventory. Most small apartments house up to 15 people and only have 5 blankets. Wijbe gives them a receipt so they can go downstairs to the truck to receive the current amount of blankets. 

The winter nights are very cold here, so they receive the help they need as Wijbe is the only one who reaches these people in this suburb.  Its the most amazing thing i have ever seen. Meanwhile in Holland people talk about how dangerous it is for a 21 year old to do this work. Criticizing him for helping at a young ‘unexperienced’ age. Wijbe way of working is so secure and so involved with highly trusted helpers you know he knows what he does. Not taking any risks and stays out of trouble. This guy helps so many people, its just amazing…
