In Memoriam - Mathieu Beurskens

With great sadness we announce that Mathieu Beurskens has passed away this weekend in the presence of his family. Mathieu has been involved since the foundation of Young Africa. As chairman (14 years), treasurer (17 years) and as board advisor (2 years). But above all, Mathieu was the face of Young Africa in the Netherlands. Tirelessly, he undertook all kinds of activities to get support for our work in Southern Africa. If he was not behind the stall selling statues and telling about our work, he presented to students at schools.

In 2017, he went with 'Young Africa retirement'. But he always remains part of the Young Africa family. Our colleagues and students affectionately called him sekuru, which means grandfather.

We will miss him. We wish his family and in particular his wife Trijn and daughters Dorien, Trijntje and Floor a lot of strength.
