Leny de Boer – van den Bronk (10 March 1919 – 2012) was a popular blind faith healer, active in the Rotterdam area (Netherlands). According to herself she derived her powers from the Italian healer Padre Pio (later canonised as saint). She bequeathed her materials related to her healing practice as research material to the Meertens Institute, including the means to set up this platform.
