Terre des Hommes appoints interim director

Due to protracted illness of Albert Jaap van Santbrink, the Supervisory Board appointed Carel Kok as interim director of Terre des Hommes this week. 

Carel Kok is an experienced international director, both in the commercial and in the public domain. He is a forward-looking leader who has proven ability to direct and strategically manage organizations in a changing environment. In addition, he has held positions that relate to the work that is done by Terre des Hommes. He is, for example, currently also chairman of the Stichting Steunfonds Jeugd (Young People Aid Foundation), which focuses on child welfare in the Rotterdam region.

Terre des Hommes has opted for an interim director to ensure that progress is not jeopardized and we feel confident that Carel Kok is an enthusiastic and motivated director who will ensure continuity. We look forward to keep fighting child exploitation together with Carel Kok.
