🙌 ACTUME lauréate du prix Afrique RSE Santé 🙌 Catégorie Diaspora

🙌 ACTUME winner of the Africa CSR Health award 🙌 Diaspora category

For ACTUME, this award rewards our actions in Mauritania: health caravans and the Community pharmacy. Thank you very much to all of our volunteers.

The health caravans of the Association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME) were born from the observation of a glaring lack of care from which the populations of the municipality of Tékane in Mauritania suffer. They made it possible to treat 17,000 patients. In addition, the problem of access to medicines arose after the caravans because of the distance from the points of sale but also of their cost. It was therefore necessary to establish a community pharmacy and solidarity within the municipality.

Un soleil s’en est allé

A sun is gone

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.
