On Wednesday September 22nd Peter van de Vorle – co-founder of Wijnroemer Relief Goods (WRG), International Medical Group Europe (IMG Europe), Environmental Nano Solutions (ENS) – passed away in the presence of his wife and daughters, at their home in Gassel.
In the beginning of 2021 Peter received the unfortunate message that he was ill and very likely to recover. Time was going to be the most uncertain factor in his life and time has passed him by.
Peter was born on June 5th, 1952 in Venray, the Netherlands. At the age of 18 he joined military service – which was the foundation for his later passion; his company in technical supply and logistics. After his journey through military service and medical Parasitology at Radboud University in Nijmegen, Peter started his own technical wholesale business. Here he built his first relationships with humanitarian aid organizations to support them with technical problems in disaster areas. Thanks to Peter’s limitless commitment, friendly approach and innovative technical knowledge, he has grown his company Wijnroemer Relief Goods (WRG) into a unique company that provides support to aid organizations worldwide.
We remember Peter as a caring man, a family person and a driven entrepreneur. His life was concentrated around Lia, his five girls, the grandchildren and the dogs. Besides his family, Peter gave everything for his sixth child: the humanitarian aid organizations. The collaboration with Doctors Without Borders has always been more than just a business relationship for Peter. He supported them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Supplying and helping projects in Haiti, Soudan, Refugee Shelter Europe, Liberia, Rwanda, Congo and many more countries in need.
