Our great team
The founders of the Sheltersuit concept are Bas Timmer and Alexander de Groot. Together with volunteers, interns and (mainly Syrian) refugees, they run the entire foundation. With a background in fashion, Bas is responsible for the designs and characteristics of the Sheltersuit. Alexander recruits donators and is engaged in establishing the proper contacts. Finally, the refugees, volunteers and interns ensure the creation of the end product.
