    Amsterdam - Rainbow Group Foundation Project

    For years, a group of around 50 rowdy, aging alcoholics had plagued a park in east Amsterdam, annoying other park-goers with noise, litter & occasional harassment.

    The Rainbow Foundation Group tries to make it as easy as possible (for alcoholics) to live their lives & that they make as little as possible nuisances to the environment they are living in.  It’s a win-win situation for community & the alcoholics. Joining John from Amsterdam is Chulah Berkowitz of the Rainbow Group & Vincent who is on the scheme.
