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.
Rens was very interested in people and their motives and was a nice travel companion. During the 2013 work visit his coaching talents came out in the discussions with the young board members of Sana Foundation. We are immensely grateful to Rens for the selfless application of his time and talents to our Palestinian students. The board members will miss him at their meetings and will strive to uphold his ideas. We offer our condolences to his wife, children and grandchildren and wish them a lot of strength with the loss of this kind man, father and granddad.
