About us

Karmel International Foundation is a Netherlands based, internationally operating charity organisation. We provide structural help to the people in the former east-block countries.

About 90 volunteers from Enschede and its neighbourhood help our activities in our headquarters, and 300 volunteers support us in Hungary and Romania. Their activity is the basis of the structural help we have been providing in the last 15 years, in the form of projects. Karmel's main power lies in voluntary work.

We have two daughter organizations in the main target countries under the names of "Karmel Hungary" and "Karmel Romania".

Karmel International's activity is based on religious background. We look at it an evangelical mission according to the Bible. The name Karmel International is based on the story of Elia on the Carmel Mountain as it is described in the Book of Kings.
