Crowdfunding for investigation of personal injury caused by moldy home in The Hague

BPW Den Haag member Trees Steeghs is starting a crowdfunding for an investigation into personal injury after years of moisture and mold problems in her rental home. After solving some of the problems, the landlord Vestia let her live in a damp and moldy house for another fifteen years and failed to take adequate measures against this. Over the years, Trees' health problems continued to increase, she developed asthma and eczema and used large amounts of medication on a daily basis. In 2020, the situation worsened to such an extent that Trees was temporarily housed in a hotel by Vestia.

Stop evictions: Residents of Dordrecht Vogelbuurt flats demand housing security

In the flats on Noordendijk in Dordrecht's Vogelbuurt, housing corporation Woonbron is currently trying to evict a group of temporary tenants and exchange them for another group of temporary residents. The residents and the BPW are taking action to prevent temporary tenants from being exchanged for each other, resulting in people becoming homeless. The flats are rented out temporarily on the basis of the Vacancy Act, but will only be demolished after October. There is therefore no need to exchange residents for each other and thus make them homeless.
