Sadly, on June 24, T.E.S. Foundation lost one of its senior members, Mr Abobaker Moossajee, RN. Aboo was his name for his family, colleagues and numerous friends. Born in Mauritius in 1937, Aboo left his home country at the age of 21 to attend School of Nursing in England. He moved to Switzerland in 1975 and lived in Lausanne where he performed as scrubnurse in ophthalmolgy working at the Jules Gonin Hospital with Prof Michel Gonvers and Prof André Mermoud, and at the Clinique Montchoisy. Aboo has 5 children living in Switzerland and Australia. Aboo participated in the fisrt steps of T.E.S. Foundation with Alain Fong, RN, and was proud to be part of a team whose purpose was to help people from his home country. He participated in numerous missions at the Moka Eye Hospital in Mauritius, assisting Prof Cyrus Tabatabay, and teaching to ophthalmologic instrument nurses during surgery sessions. We shall always remember his kindness, the care he gave to those he knew and the brightness of his laugh.
