Inside the Box

Relief packages for refugees or those in disaster-stricken areas meet essential needs, containing food and medicine. But there is no room for toys or games – a basic need for children. Playing helps them to cope. With ‘Inside the Box’ Lisanne Koning has created a way to make the packages themselves fun by printing colourful images of animals, vehicles and board games on the inside. These can easily be cut out to make toys and there are different colour codes for different ages. In this way, the aid boxes are not wasted, but get a new life, brightening the days of the most vulnerable.
