Last month, we received the very sad news that EDF’s Board Member, Peter Lambreghts, passed away.

EDF and the whole disability movement will miss a valuable friend and a great activist who dedicated his life in fighting for the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in society.

“The disability movement in his country, in Europe is now poorer. We have lost a great disability activist, a brilliant leader and above all a great person”, said EDF President, Yannis Vardakastanis.

His commitment, passion, hard work and kindness will continue inspiring the work of EDF’s team every day.

Our thoughts are with Peter’s family and friends as well as with his colleagues from the European Network on Independent Living (ENIL) and Onafhankelijke Leven.

ENIL has created a short video in Peter’s honour.
