Our ambassadors

The Gilat Foundation has five ambassadors who join us in helping the children in the hospital: Vajèn van den Bosch, Albert Verlinde, Barbara Barend, Halina Reijn and Hakim Traïda.


Halina Reijn

“I really like how Gilat Foundation uses theatre and creativity to distract children from the daily worries, insecurities and pain they face.”

Albert Verlinde

“A child in hospital should be able to look forward to something. That’s when a performance is fantastic.”

Barbara Barend

“Letting children and their parents do something they can do for a while, so they can enjoy themselves for a while. That’s what we do it for with the Gilat theatre.”

Hakim Traïda

“Interacting with the children in the hospital creates unforgettable moments.”
