Terre des Hommes ambassadors are committed to fighting child exploitation. The celebrity spotlight they selflessly share calls the public’s attention to our cause. For their enthusiastic support, we thank Lucy Woesthoff, The 3JS, Roelof Hemmen and Thekla Reuten.
Actor Thekla Reuten has been a passionate ambassador for years. She uses her fame to bring attention largely to the exploitation of children in mica mines.
"We see more clearly now than ever that our world is full of corrupt systems. They break down the world and humanity instead of building it up. Children are the most vulnerable victim in this. They need our attention and protection more than anyone. And that's why I am ambassador for Terre des Hommes."
Lucy Woesthoff is a proud mother of four. She co-owns the company Dromenjager, famous for producing the children’s book series Woezel and Pip, and is a first-time author.
"As an ambassador, I want to make people aware of the enormous scale on which child exploitation takes place. Also in our country. Let's not put our heads in the sand, but take action to protect our children. A better world for children? I want to work on that. Do you? "
Roelof Hemmen is an interviewer, coach and presenter. With passion, he voices our radio and TV commercials. Roelof cannot tolerate injustice. He is especially bothered by the online sexual abuse of children in the Philippines.
"I'm an ambassador for Terre des Hommes. Because Terre des Hommes is doing something against men here who abuse children on the other side of the world. Online but sometimes physically. And it's devastating. Terre des Hommes does something. And I want to help ."
The 3JS have been enthusiastic and committed ambassadors of Terre des Hommes for years. Jan Dulles, Jaap Kwakman and Robin Küller use their music and fame to bring our work to the public’s attention.
At their own expense, the 3JS visited our projects in Cambodia and Lebanon for children on the run.
"I am Jaap Kwakman of the 3JS. As the father of two children, I find it unbelievable that 150 million children worldwide still do forced labor. That is why we are committed to Terre des Hommes."
