† Benoît Muhimuzi †

HOPE’87 Burundi Country Director

It is with deep sadness that we announce that our dear friend and colleague, Mr Benoît Muhimuzi, passed away in Brussels on 18th of September 2021 after a short illness. He will be buried in Kigali (Ruanda) next week in the presence of his wife, children and family.

Benoit was Country Director of HOPE'87-Burundi for over 10 years and implemented a variety of project of development cooperation and humanitarian aid for the benefit of people in need.

He was a person with a huge heart, respectful of all, a champion of justice and peace, and always sensitive, responsible, courteous and attentive to others.

We bow our heads in silence to a great man who has forever found his place in our memory and in our hearts.

Our thoughts are with Benoît's family and his friends and colleagues.

In grief,

for the worldwide HOPE'87 family, the HOPE'87 Board, all Country Offices and all staff members,

Robert Ottitsch,

Secretary General

HOPE’87,

Vienna, Austria
