On behalf of their families we have to share with you that we lost two of our beloved colleagues on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17: Martine de Schutter (Programme Manager Bridging the Gaps) and Pim de Kuijer (lobbyist). With great sadness and deep devastation we took notice of this sad news. Pim and Martine were on their way to the International AIDS Conference in Melbourne. Our thoughts and compassion go out to their families and friends. We wish them strength in these difficult times. Our colleagues were inspiring and beautiful people, who we will forever embrace in our hearts.

There is a special condolence page for Martine and Pim.

Louise van Deth and Ton Coenen, executive directors of the Aidsfonds – STOP AIDS NOW! – STI AIDS Netherlands
