“MCNV is known to me as a dedicated group of people, both in the Netherlands and Vietnam, with a genuine passion to improve the lives of vulnerable people. I’m happy and honored to be given the chance to serve as a member of the board of MCNV,  the organization that supported my first work in Vietnam between 1995 and 2000. After being a “ tropical doctor” in Africa, I lived for 5 years in Vietnam, working with the Netherlands Red Cross and MCNV, especially on integrated health development;  then I continued my link with Vietnam supporting their efforts to eliminate tuberculosis while based in the Netherlands. In recent years I was director of the KCNV country office in Indonesia. I hope my experience with development work and the region can be a resource for MCNV.” – Agnes Gebhard, Technical Director KNCV TB Foundation
