Founded on November 16th in 1949, is a private organization, entirely depending on donations.
No matter how young or old, everyone on Curaçao who’s battling cancer may count on the unconditional love, support, and help of the Princess Wilhelmina Foundation.
PWF was founded in 1949 on behalf of Queen Wilhelmina and has been entirely dependent on donations ever since. This is the main reason why we, as Ride for the Roses, do what we do. We are determined to keep hosting our events as long as cancer continues to interfere in the lives of patients on the island.
- The board of PWF consists of 13 voluntary members.
- 17 volunteers are running the Recreation and Therapy department, engaging in daily activities for patients and survivors.
- About 60 contributors commit themselves to annual fundraising.
- Not to forget the volunteers who help prepare food packages, those who help spread awareness and PWF’s voluntary PR specialist.
