Jacqueline founded the foundation “ Meld Geweld” (Report Violence). This foundation initiated safety places for witnesses or victims of violence or people who feel unsafe. These so called OK Points, are locations where you can go if you are a witness or victim of street violence. These include public places such as cafés, restaurants, libraries, municipal institutions, sports clubs, neighborhood accommodations, hairdressers, shops and hotels. The purpose of the OK points is that people become aware again that if you feel unsafe or threatened, it is normal to ask for support and help and get it.
