“I have supported and admired MCNV for many years, particularly because of its long collaboration with Vietnam and the progress and value of its work. MCNV’s focus on vulnerable groups and their empowerment is important to me, something that I am eager to dedicate myself to.” – Marijke Postma-Rustenhoven was regional board member of Humanitas and worked in organisational development in Holland and abroad.
“It is a pleasure to work with enthusiastic, creative and professional staff of an ngo like MCNV. I got to know MCNV as an organisation with a great added value, directed towards what the people in Vietnam need.” – Henk van de Ruit, financial controller and manager at the Technical University of Delft, chairman of audit committee MCNV.
“In my work at the Medical University, I regularly collaborated with MCNV, particularly in projects in the area of research and training. The many years of enjoyable and respectful cooperation formed the basis for my decision to become a member of the Board of Directors of MCNV.” – Luu Ngoc Hoat, former Vice Rector of Hanoi Medical University.
“Already as a student back in 1968 I admired the work of MCNV. After working in Kenya and later as a family doctor I focussed more on the general medicine orientation of health care in Africa. Following trips to Vietnam, China and Burma it became clear to me that MCNV was going through an interesting development. Principles like equity, empowerment and inclusion appeal to general practitioners. For such an ngo I’ll do it.” – Pieter van den Hombergh, consultant general medicine, retired general practitioner and tropical doctor.
“I lived in Laos, Thailand and Vietnam for long periods and did research there, particularly regarding questions on the interface of energy, climate and development. MCNV has a people-oriented, integrated approach to development in a region that is dear to me.” – Mattijs Smits, Lecturer on Environmental Policy, University of Wageningen
“As a consultant for Global Initiative on Psychiatry (GIP) I was involved in the TEA-program, and that was how I got to know MCNV. MCNV’s mission is to give people access to education, housing, safe foods and (mental) healthcare. My own insights and motivations fit seamlessly with MCNV’s fieldwork and the results that I have seen. That is why I want to be a part of MCNV.” – Wim Welbers, manager mental healthcare GGZ.
