Cirion Foundation

the impact of infectious diseases

Mario der Weduwen, BBA

As an Information Technologist working in the board of directors of a corporate Dutch company, I’m very passionate about the vision of Cirion, which is also to spread knowledge to prevent infectious diseases. The most meaningful program for primary and secundary schools is the Viruskenner program. School children and students are asked to make a project about a virus and present the results in a competition to a Cirion jury. When I was member of the jury in Suriname, I was very enthusiastic about the knowledge and creativity of the school children and students. The work for the foundation is meaningful and important. That's why I’m very passionate to be a board member of the Cirion Foundation.
