Dutch Skin Foundation calls attention to skin diseases by sounding the gong


By sounding the gong, the Dutch Skin Foundation calls attention to over one million patients with a skin disease in The Netherlands. This number is increasing due to lifestyle and aging. Skin cancer is a good example. Many patients suffer because of their skin disease and barely step out. Shame may play a role. Our society underestimates their burden.

National Skin Foundation is an independent charitable organization that puts up a vigorous fight against skin diseases. It does so with scientific research and improvement of health care. These activities require a lot of money. The Dutch Skin Foundation is entirely dependent on donations, gifts and grants. Managing director, John de Korte and Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Roland Koopman, sound the gong.
