On a personal note: “I first met Richard Ohlsson in Lund in 2016, at which time he introduced me to the Better Futures Foundation. I was impressed by the inspiration that had motivated him and Bibi to engage so completely in this project. Also, the connection to the White Buses is something I strongly identify with, primarily through the activities of my late father during and after WW II. I am honored to receive an invitation to join the Board of the Foundation and hope to be able to contribute to the aspirations of this worthy cause.”
