Arthur Bondar fled from Ukraine eight months ago, soon after his arrival in The Hague he was able to work in the kitchen of beach bar De Staat. First as a dishwasher, now as an assistant to the chef. “I am very happy to be here and to be taken care of so well. The people here are very helpful”, says Arthur in broken English.

Jeroen Kuiper, owner of beach bar De Staat and since a year also of restaurant Harpoon, has always helped refugees from all over the world. “I think it’s great that we can do something for them and at the same time we also need staff.”
