André Poulie -one of the two brothers who founded Fondation Theodora - had to spend a couple of months in the hospital, right after an accident he had, when he was a little boy. Back then, the encouraging visits paid by his mother on a regular basis, lightened him up and created notable change in the isolated and sad hospital life he was stuck in. Years after this experience, André came up with the idea of an institution which would have the mission of cheering up children throughout their stay in hospitals.
The Board of the Foundation was founded to comply with its establishment in 1993 and has been developing continuously ever since. Today the Board consists of 17 honorary members bringing along with them a wide range of competency in different fields. The Foundation Board gathers semi-annually.
