The Queen Maxima from Holland indicated that, on the occasion of their 50 years, they decided to dedicate the next decade to working to improve the situation of many people “psychologically vulnerable”.

In 2018, Ines Sorreguieta, younger sister of Queen Máxima, committed suicide in Argentina. Inés was Máxima’s favorite and the 13 years of difference that separated them were the common denominator that brought them closer and that had made the Queen of Holland take her as her protégé as a child. Their relationship was so deep that Máxima chose her as the godmother of her youngest daughter, Ariane, born in 2007 in The Hague.

The new program is part of the themes they will work on in the next decade, dedicating the first three years to develop a plan to support 80 initiatives of different volunteers that allow to assist psychologically vulnerable people in their recovery and their reincorporation into society.
