Reinforcing our Commitment

Financial Adoption of Orphans in India

Childrenshome is a Dutch Christian ANBI Foundation that saves children's lives in India and then offers them proper education, among other Math, English, Ethics, IT, and more. CEO Manely Ellamo adopted financially for three years (2016-2018), an orphan girl (see picture). She is now 17 years old and no longer at 'Childrenshome'; she parted to support her family. The goal is eventually to offer support to aid more children and maximize the efforts from this caring organization lead by the Dutch couple

Jan Mureau en Lia Mureau Rullens. In 2020 a delegation of the Ellamo board will meet with them and set goals for a decent financial support plan for the coming five years.

Ellamo supports with all means the following film-related projects with high humanitarian value and positive impact potential.

Wim Hof 'The Ice Man' Film

" More Than a Film " 

Wim Hof 'The Ice Man Film' already has been branded worldwide as

'More Than A Film.'

October 2010, we initiated this project on request by Wim Hof when he and Manely met and became instant friends. The film director and producer saw the humanitarian potential and an excellent science-based case potential. Therefore, Manely decided to sign a contract with Wim and start from scratch involving science. By now, there are official and published scientific papers and a first draft screenplay.

In 2016 a WHF Gala was held in Amsterdam, which became acclaimed and famous and a format to do again.

We expect to deliver the final draft of the screenplay in September 2021.

The financial phase is now in place.

A joint venture with Hollywood (USA) parties is in the making.
