New Year’s greetings 2013

In 2012 we have witnessed an erosion of service to our vulnerable pupils in some European  countries.

May 2013 be a year where we make progress in our aim to provide education to children and young adults who are sick. New Year’s Day is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one. (Thanks to Brad Paisley).

We wish you a peaceful new year and all the best for 2013.


Jan Haverkate,

HOPE president
