Since 2006 Joanne had travelled to Uganda a number of times to do volunteerwork. She found out that much could be improved about the situation of disadvantaged children using relatively few means. She got to know many people who she took to her heart. She stimulated children to go to school and she paid the schoolfees for a number of children whose parents couldn’t afford to do so. In December 2008 Joanne was murdered, her beautiful life was ended prematurely, a life filled with ideals, plans and dreams. She was 27 years old, in this short timespan she has meant a lot to many people and set so much in motion.
