To our great sorrow we heard this morning that our past president Coert van Ee on Saturday 12 December has passed away.

Coert was president of the EKPF during the period from 2019 to 2020, but had to leave the presidency for health reasons.

In words of our Dutch friends, «when Coert spoke, everyone fell silent and listened attentively. Coert had the gift of pointing out potential obstacles and to analyse problems to the essence. He was a warm personality and a passionate advocate of the current Dutch donor law.

We will miss his many years of very good input. We wish the family of Coert and his loved ones very much strength in these difficult times».

The members of the Board of Directors would like to show their support to the colleagues of the Dutch Kidney Patients´ Association (NVN) and send them warm greetings.
