The beloved friend and partner, Vincent Tournecuillert, passed away on Wednesday night, at 21/11/2018, after a road accident just a few days earlier.

Vincent, born 46 years ago in France, was a citizen of the world that knew well how to take care of the important things with the deserved passion, to fight for the goals of his humanitarian mission and to succeed them.

He started his professional life as a journalist and always held the research look that characterizes the journalists worthy of their function. After covering as journalist the wars in the Balkans and Africa, he used to work with non-governmental organizations in various parts of the world for about two decades: Iraq, Bosnia, Yemen, Albania, Morocco, Belgium and Budapest at the end. Wherever he lived, wherever he acted, he was tempted by a deep and genuine longing to understand and respect the ways, the times, and the hardships of the ordinary people he had chosen to work with. With pure scientific and political thought, with knowledge and empathy, he tried to improve the lives of the more vulnerable people among the vulnerable ones.
