Fr Sjaak de Boer MHM is a member of the Supervisory Board of Cordaid and has signed up for another two years on the joint Board. He writes:
“The merger of Cordaid and ICCO is a fact! Today widely in the press. ICCO will merge into Cordaid and join forces for the poor. Front page news in the Dutch Media.
My role in the council is the pastoral care for 500 employees and to the outside world. Also contact with the bishops and liturgy where necessary. I work with a pastor to preserve Christian values. I will also visit a project in the field if I can again. There is still a lot of work to be done, but this moment is worth celebrating. It’s nice that Mill Hill stood at the foot of this new aid organization, which is the largest in the Netherlands after Medics without borders”.
