On occasion of its 10th anniversary, the Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation has launched the #WhyProBono social media campaign. Lex Mundi and its member firms aim to raise the awareness of pro bono work, and to encourage volunteerism globally. VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne supports this cause by showing how our lawyers contribute to the local communities and the development of the islands on which we operate.

Godelieve helped the non-profit cultural organization Kurá di Arte in Curaçao with the drafting of various contracts and agreements. In the film she shares her experience working for Kurá di Arte, and Lemiza Martina (manager of Kurá di Arte) explains how the help of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne provided the foundation with a solid legal kick-start, and how our firm enabled Kurá di Arte to build good alliances with their partners.

Partner Randolph van Eps currently assists anthropological museum Kura Hulanda in several complex transactions and negotiations with the government. The ultimate goal is to ensure that the museum can continue to exist and remain located in the old city center of Willemstad in Curaçao. As explained by Darrilyne Elstak, coordinator of Kura Hulanda, this means that together we try to have a neglected building adjecent to Kura Hulanda renovated and have the the art collection moved to this new place. In this way, future generations of Curaçao are able to keep learning about their history and cultural heritage.
