HAMEL FOUNDATION

Hendrick Hamel Foundation

The Hendrick Hamel Foundation is a private initiative from Gorcum. The Foundation aims to realize the Hamel house on the actual site of Hendrick Hamel's birth, in close cooperation with the municipality of Gorinchem, culture funds and (inter)national partners. Using the Hamel house we wish to raise awareness of the historic seafarer Hamel and the relationship between the Netherlands and Korea.

In Korea Hamel is a symbol of courage, perseverance and enterprise. Hamel is a phenomenon and allows us to draw on those qualities.
