The 40th Anniversary of ILCO Österreich in Vienna
At least 150 ostomates, some of them with the husband or the wife or with a son or a daughter, wanted to rally round their Association for its 40th Anniversary. And that was already an expression of affection for the Association which did not make them to feel alone and that gave them the confidence to be supported when they need and also the possibility to know other ostomates and other friends. But, really, let’s not forget, behind any organization, especially behind the voluntary associations, there are always people and their thank was directed to all the persons who leaded ILCO Österreich during its 40 years of life: now, they are Susanne Deimel and Margit Kirnbauer (respectively president and secretary of ILCO Österreich) above all, but also the other helping persons like Gerda Karner (president of the Vienna’s club) and all the others that I do not know.
