In silent memory

Shortly before Christmas, we received sad news from AMPO in Ouagadougou.

Souleymane Nana, also affectionately known as Chouchou, passed away on 12 December 2023 after a long and serious illness.

Chouchou was the director of the women's shelter MIA/ALMA for many years.

In his younger years, he himself slipped into the red light milieu of Ouagadougou. Then he met Katrin Rohde and changed sides.

He protected the young women like a lion because he knew exactly what had happened to some of them. He freed many young women from prostitution and gave them a new perspective in life.

During our trips to Ouagadougou, we also always felt that he was a guardian angel. He never left our side and organised our wonderful stays.

Today, Chouchou will be buried in his home village. The AMPO team will pay their last respects to him.

We mourn with his family and AMPO on site.

Farewell, dear Chouchou, we will not forget you!

Honoured posthumously for his life's work
