Claude Simon
Five years ago, I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Claude Simon from HSF-ZZG, an humanitarian Belgian Rotary NGO.

I was immediately enthused and I decided to try and help HSF-ZZG financially.

My hobby is photography and I also had the opportunity to know the Vice President of ZZG and friend Mr. Luc Fauquette, also the governor Mr. José Claerhout, and Dr. Marc Casaer.
We issued a photography book (called LIFE) in 2010 and also yearly calendars in 2010, 2011 and 2012 (called Happy 2010, Happy 2011 and Happy 2012).

This year, with the support of past governor José Claerhout of RC Izegem - D.1620, we produced an art book Piet Petillion, who is an honory member of RC Izegem. It became a succes.


MR. Van Rompuy, President of the European Council, was kind enough to donate one of his Haikus and to write an introduction.

Thanks to those actions we were able to collect a fair amount to support HSF-ZZG financially.

This was only possible thanks to the help of the members of RC Izegem and several friends-sponsors. Among them, special thanks should go to Pieter Delesie, owner of IDcreation, and Waldo Engels, both Paul Harris Fellows. Without their help it would have been impossible to realize the book.

During the visit of Rotary International President Kalyan Banjeree at HSF-ZZG, I had the honor to give him the book to illustrate the NGO action.
