Board member change Treasurer
When we started the Foundation, we asked the brother of Douwe: Krien, to take on the role of Treasurer. He would do this until we’d find a suitable other candidate.
Last February, Douwe met Iris at Khagendra. She’s physiotherapist and helped the residents at Khagendra with physiotherapy with her expertise. She also arranged a new air mattress Chija Maya.
Because I’d be in Nepal early March too, we would meet alongside. The click was right there. We have a warmly thanks for Kriens help for the first year of the foundation. And from now on, Iris is our new board member as Treasurer.
At the moment, Iris is in Australia and we wish her a pleasant journey! Because the board mostly communicates via e-mail and other digital channels, it is not a problem that she is in another time zone.
We are very pleased that Iris has accompanied us within the board and we are certainly going to have a nice cooperation!
