The Association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME) regrets to announce the death of our brother and friend Souleymane BAL* says Hamidou, on Sunday 9 November 2020 in Bordeaux.

The members of the association are deeply saddened. Our thoughts are with his wife Hawa DJIGO and their children. We extend our sincere condolences to them and to the whole family in Mauritania.

All the people who knew him will remember his kindness, his availability, his calm, and his generosity. He was an active member of our association in Bordeaux. As we mourn his loss we know he is again at peace and pain free.

The main thing for a man after his death is what he leaves in the hearts of his fellow men. And as Birago DIOP says so well in his poem Souffles: "Those who died never left".

He will remain in our hearts for the beautiful memories he left with us.
