MetaCorp and Jeon donate AFL. 6.316,50 to Fundacion Pa Nos Comunidad
(FPNC) and AFL. 6.316,50 to Fundacion pa Hende Muhe den Dificultad (FHMD)

The pandemic has brought hard times to the Aruban community and imperiled
food security for many families and individuals across to island. As a response to
the pandemic, MetaCorp re-opened its iconic Drive-In Theater in Kibaima on the
29th of July 2020 with a spectacular car concert by Jeon, in cooperation with Elite
Productions, The Movies and Balashi Brewery.
All proceeds of that concert are now being donated to two foundations that directly
support the local community with food baskets as well as support and guide victims of
domestic violence. “The original idea behind the concert was to share a message of
hope, bringing music and joy during this challenging time while supporting the local
community with funds for food”, says Jeon, who initiated the plan for a charity concert.
“The reopened Drive-In Theater was the perfect location to do this. It’s an ideal
entertainment setting that allows for social distancing and complies with all the health
procedures provided by our government.“
As one of the largest employers on the island, MetaCorp is dedicated to supporting
initiatives in the wider Aruban community. Eddie de Veer, CEO of MetaCorp: “In times
like these we must stick together and think of the bigger picture. Aruba is its people and
we are happy that we can give something back. It takes not only a great idea, but also
the unified strength of great partners to pull something impactful together. With our
common effort we were able to raise a remarkable amount that will directly support the
ones in need.”
Fundacion Pa Nos Comunidad (FPNC) is the official foodbank on Aruba since 2009. It
supports vulnerable groups and volunteer-initiatives across the Aruban community.
Their mission is to avoid and fight poverty, emotional distress and social exclusion in the
broadest sense of the word. FPNC promotes participation, poverty care and the
complete welfare on Aruba. During the Covid-19 crisis, under coordination from the Red
Cross, FPNC has provided more than 17.800 food baskets to people in need.
Fundacion pa Hende Muhe den Dificultad (FHMD) provides support and guidance to
victims of domestic violence and helps spread awareness with the goal of ending
domestic violence on Aruba. FHMD offers guidance after encountering domestic
violence, temporary housing in times of crisis, psychological as well as legal help when
needed. FHMD gives counseling and lectures to ambulatory clients such as to schools
and empower women in order to make them less vulnerable to accept domestic
violence as the norm.
