Like many others, Beyond the Moon is also hit very hard by the corona crisis. Since March 2020, the world is upside down because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our holiday partners must either (temporarily) close their doors and/or modify or cancel a number of entertainment facilities. For the first time since the inception in 2005, our all-in holiday package cannot be offered for the time being. Additionally, the primary care physicians cannot give a medical authorisation to go on vacation. In short, our main project 'Offer a Vacation' aimed at our target group cannot be implemented until further notice and is still on hold.
However, we didn't spend time doing nothing. Despite and partly because of Covid-19, we decided to start a second, new project that is not dependent on the travel sector. This is how our secondary project 'Paint a Smile' was born in the Spring of 2021. This project brings colour to the lives of, among others, hospitalised children to make them forget about the all too often traumatic medical world for a while.
