SESAM Newsletter April 2016

Dear Friends and Collegues,

Once again, the strike of obscurantism has deeply touched the heart of Europe last month. We all stand strong next to our Belgian friends and colleagues to promote our core values of brotherhood, open mind and tolerance in our everyday life and work. With strong sympathy for all the population that were affected, and for all the caregivers that tremendously took care of the wounded, SESAM would like to send a warm message of support through its network
