In memoriam Tom Visser

On June 19, 2020, our board member Tom Visser passed away at a too young age of 68.

A terrible loss, not only for the Warmte foundation for the children, but especially for his wife Ljubica and his children.

For years, Tom has worked on behalf of our foundation for the realization of heating projects in his beloved Bosnia. His technical baggage and knowledge of Bosnia greatly helped him to successfully complete all projects. Together with Ljubica, he ensured that all agreements were met as agreed and that the work was carried out in accordance with his specifications. Even when he felt his end approaching, he was enormously involved in the realization of a large and unique project related to a school in Tekucica. He wanted to realize this project at all costs, but unfortunately his debilitating illness decided otherwise. As chairman of the Warmth for the Children foundation, I promised Tom to finish his work, as far as my skills can handle. I am grateful for the support I receive from Tom's family.

Tom was a professional through and indispensable for the foundation. We will miss him enormously, but nevertheless try to continue his good work, no matter how difficult it will be.
