The Netherlands

The foundation was started in 1996 by the Dutch doctors who have all been working in Rubya Hospital since 1963.
The aim of the foundation is to support Rubya Hospital, without being responsible for the day to day running of the hospital.
This is done by supporting projects in the hospital financially such as training of staff and construction and rehabilitation of buildings. For this purpose benefactors are contacted in the Netherlands. All board members work in their free time and pro deo. The hospital is visited by board members regularly.
The board of the foundation: chairman is doctor Fons Mathot, secretary is mrs. Marijke Kool, treasurer is mr. Wim Mathot; members are doctor Guus Bruins, doctor Erik de Vries, doctor Lamiek Westerhof. Technical advisor is mr. Jacques Hulsbergen.
