The Fenix Foundation aim is to help animals in need in the province of Ceara in Brazil. They do this by providing the stray animals with food and care and by castrating and vaccinating them.
In 2006 Janneke, together with her husband, took the step to emigrate from The Netherlands to Brazil where they hold sway over their Pousada & Restaurant 0031 in Cumbuco. In addition to running 0031, Janneke has been committed to help animals in need in the province of Ceara for years. Her love for animals is enormous and Janneke is known for doing everything she can to help the animals in need. A long cherished dream of Janneke was to offer the animals in need more than she can now do. With the establishment of the Fenix Foundation, this dream has finally come true for her.
