“GEEF ME ZEEP. GEEF ME EEN HANDDOEK.”
During thirty years, Piet Mensvoort was a missionary in the former Dutch New Guinea. In “Geef me zeep. Geef me een handdoek.” Mensvoort tells how his belief has changed under the influence of local conditions and how the Christian charity based activity was seen by the population. This portrait is largely beyond the stereotypical judgments that are usually applied to these anonymous benefactors.
