This Gambia- based Dutch nurse has been helping Gambians for decades by giving them medical care. Rianne helps out with her own means, time and expertise and the help of a group of friends and relatives. She has never felt the need to set up a formal foundation or organization to support her activities. As a thank you, her support group receive letters (by snail mail!) in which she describes her experiences in the Gambia. Her letters read like the chapters of an exciting book in several volumes; moving, raw, respectful to Gambian culture and compassionate. Above all: Rianne cares.
Update: Rianne has passed away peacefully in 2020. Rest in Peace beautiful and inspiring lady. Your legacy will live on here and in The Gambia.
