Halima tells us:
‘My father died of COPD, when I was a kid. He was ill for years. His suffering motivated me to become a nurse. Children have always been a source of pleasure for me and the fact that I can make them smile gives me inner fulfillment.'
'I much enjoy my study Nursing, sharing an apartment with other students, living and eating together. I would love to live and work in Tel Aviv for the rest of my life’.
In the meantime Halima finished her study and married. At this moment she takes care for her little daughter for one year.

Happy to present already our Annual Report 2017. Here we inform you about the activities of the board in the past year and the most important financial aspects.
Today 15 March 2018 we had to part with Rens Kessener, who died much too early. For seven years, from 2011 until 2017, Rens was treasurer of the Foundation Friends of Nazareth. He was a dedicated and passionate member of the board with a keen eye for the feasibility of the objectives of the Foundation.
