Mieke Steen - Founder and Chairperson
Mrs. Mieke Steen lives in Ommen, The Netherlands and is married to Rien Steen. She is a nurse by profession. Together they have two daughters; Ellen and Liza, Ellen lives in Uganda. Through visits to her daughter, Mieke got in touch with the local communities, where she was so much touched by the poverty and the long distances that people traveled to the nearest health unit: mostly on foot, or if one is lucky on a motor cycle. That is why she decided to dedicate her time and effort towards fundraising for the health unit Good Hope.
Mother Theresa once said:
“One cannot do great things, but only small things with great love”
