New Board

With the end of the academic year, the end of the current board is also near. Unfortunately, it is time to say goodbye to 5 of our board members. Laura Cammaert and Maud Cox will stop after 2 years in the board. Fauve van Veen, Kirsten Waanders and Sophie van de Walle will stop as well. Julia van den Brink and Véronique Hulsmans will fulfill a different function in the board and the other functions will be fulfilled by new enthousiastic students, who would like to introduce themselves to you. 

President: Julia van den Brink
Hi again! After an incredible year in the board of MUSTANGH Foundation, I am not yet ready to say goodbye to this beautiful organisation. In the past year, I have learned a lot about this foundation and about the culture and healthcare in Ghana. MUSTANGH has gotten a special place in my heart. I have had a lot of fun trying to achieve our goals and I would love to continue doing this next year.
I hope to achieve a lot and have an amazing year with the board! I am very excited to see what next year will bring. 
Vice-president: Véronique HulsmansHallookes!
My name is Véronique Hulsmans. I’m a 21 years old Medicine student in my second year. I wanted to be a doctor ever since I was little. I loved the idea of being able to improve or save someone’s life. My family contains a lot of doctors, so you could say it’s in my blood! I have always wanted to be a volunteer for Doctors Without Borders. I hope I will get the chance to volunteer for this organisation when I’ve become a doctor myself. That’s also why MUSTANGH caught my attention. Last year I was the PR commissioner in the board of MUSTANGH. I was so enthusiastic that I decided to stay another year in the MUSTANGH family. Next year I will be the new vice-president. I believe I know how MUSTANGH works now and I’m able to make sure I will succeed in the different tasks of the vice-president.
Secretary: Anna Masud
Hey! I am Anna Masud, 20 years old and I live in Geleen. I Very happily I can tell you I that I am going to my second-year of Medicine and I love it! It has always been a dream of mine to, like my parents, become a doctor. Voluntary activities and organizations such as Doctors Without Borders have always appealed to me. In 2016 I travelled to South Africa and in 2018 to Papua Indonesi. The African culture has left a great impression on me. MUSTANGH combines the two things that I find very interesting, namely an African country and health care. Next year I will hold the position of ‘Secretary’. I am really looking forward to it!
Treasurer: Meral de Jong
Hi everyone! My name is Meral de Jong and I will be the treasurer of MUSTANGH this year. I am 18 years old and will start the second year of my Bachelor Biomedical Sciences in academic year 2019/2020. When I was a volunteer in Uganda, I have been able to witness how unfair the wealth and recourses are distributed around the world. This has always stayed with me, which made me interested immediately when I heard of the MUSTANGH Foundation. I think it is very special that an organisation ran by students, can make such a big difference for all the people that depend on the West Gonja Hospital. The goals and opinions of MUSTANGH are something I fully encourage and I will dedicate myself to completely, and I am really excited to do so upcoming year!
Acquisition officer:  Peggy Ummels
Hi everyone! My name is Peggy Ummels and I am 20 years old. Currently I am in my second year of medicine at Maastricht University.
I think MUSTANGH is a really nice organisation which has a great purpose. It is impressive to see how much changes this organisation has brought in Ghana while only being run by students.
Last year I already was part of the acquisition committee of the MUSTANGH Foundation. I really liked being part of this committee and that’s why I also decided to do a year in the board as the head of acquisition. I am looking forward to work my best for MUSTANGH and hopefully to help the WGH in Ghana even more!
Education officer: Lizy van EijkDear all,
My name is Lizy van Eijk, I’m 20 years old and I’m studying Medicine.
After two years of joining the PR-committee of MUSTANGH, I’m really looking forward to be the Head of Education this year! One of the most beautiful things about MUSTANGH, is that a group of close students achieves so many good things in the WGH in Ghana and I can’t wait to get started and get a lot more beautiful things done!
PR officer: Lotte FlachsHello everyone
I’m Lotte Flachs. I’m 21 years old and I am going to my second year of Medicine. Before I came to Maastricht to study, I studied Biomedical Sciences in Hasselt. I was looking for something challenging to do next to my study so I applied for a function in the board of MUSTANGH. I’m so excited to be the head of PR. I look forward to try and make MUSTANGH better known among students, together with the committee!
