Since 2011, the association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME) has organized a solidarity dinner every year in Courbevoie. On this occasion, information relating to the association's activities, its completed projects and those to come is presented to all members of the association, volunteers and a large diaspora.

Evening of solidarity in honor of Ndiaye Ciré KANE

This year, we honored our eldest and dean, Ndiaye Ciré Kane, Founder and former Manager of Keur Samba on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The event was placed under the patronage of Saidou Kane, economic operator in Senegal, and welcomed, as a guest association, Thilogne Association Development (TAD)

The evening of solidarity was particularly marked by the humility of an affable man, in this case, Ndiaye Ciré KANE which wisely points out that “the first of elegances lies first of all in sincere humility”. Watch the video : here
