Last week the cheques were presented to the charities: both VUmc Alzheimer Centre and UAF Foundation for Refugee Students received an amount of € 12,500.
Present at the presentation of the cheques were: Peter Santa (conductor), Philip Scheltens (director VUmc Alzheimer Center), Wouter van Putten (president Lions Club Bussum Godelinde), Caspar van der Geest (partner JBR) and Mariette Flipse (UAF relationship manager).
The VUmc Alzheimer Centre conducts scientific research into the fight against dementia and provides care for patients. Since 1948 the UAF has been supporting highly educated refugees in finding a suitable social position.
