NS is often approached with requests to support charities. Although we appreciate the good work done by charities, we are unfortunately unable to meet all of the requests. There are a number of charities with which we collaborate frequently, and for which public transport plays an important role. These include charities for the blind and visually impaired, for people with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, and those aimed at suicide prevention.
In addition, ProRail and NS organise the annual Spoorwensdagen. This is a two-day event aimed at fulfilling railway-related wishes. Around 200 volunteers from both organisations spend the day guiding those who've made wishes.
