A family of medical doctors with a passion for Central America and a desire to do more

Throught their travels to Central America, the Ruwet Family made connections with numerous medical professionals. They  shared their experiences of medical practices and concluded that collaboration was possible. They learned to help each others and decided to go one step further with the shipment of medical equipment.

Jean-François

Jean-François has a  family practice in his hometown of Thimister. He is also a businessman who used to run a great part of his activities in Central America. He still keeps strong links in this part of the world that he has learned to love over his multiples stays. His knwoledge of the region and his local business contacts have been of great help in the logistic development of OJALA.

 

Geneviève

Geneviève is a physician specialized in anesthesia-resuscitation. She is the first female head of the OR department at the St Elisabeth clinic of Heusy. Her versatile sense of organization has allowed her to manage her family life and professional accomplishments. Today, her extensive network helps us secure medical equipment in various Belgian hospitals that wants to help.

Jean 

Jean is the leader of this project. After a medical degree  from the Catholic University of Louvain, he completed a master's degree in economics at Solvay. His dual background is what allows Ojala to make the link between the business and the medical aspects of this project. His previous ventures at the intersection of health and business make him the perfect manager for this initiative.

Guillaume

Guillaume is the breed apart. As an electromechanic engineer, he has resisted the temptation of a medical career. At the head of his own company since the age of 20, he has found his place in the family non-profit by managing the restoration of  medical equipment sent to Central America.

 

Elisabeth

Elisabeth is an intern in general medicine. During her studies at the University of Liège, she met her husband who is also a general practitioner. Together, after their residency, they share the project to create their multidisciplinary medical practice. Always attentive to others, her beliefs push her to look after the most disadvantaged. Her strengths are her sensitivity and her unifying spirit which facilitate exchanges with local partners.
