De Vrijwillige Hulpdienst Eindhoven is an independent foundation which organizes voluntary help for almost fifty years. Over 500 volunteers (called Maatjes, which is Dutch for buddy) offer support to community-dwelling care recipients in the field of wellbeing and care. The help offered is as much as possible aimed at restoring strength and the self-sufficiency of the care recipients. At the VHE there are different Maatjesprojects.
