In silent and grateful memory

Neuwied-Matara Friendship Association commemorates with appreciation and gratitude its 1st President from 2005 – 2010,  Mr. Hans Dieter Deckert, retired District Administrator,

who died on 17 October 2019 in Mainz.

Hans Dieter Deckert was involved in our activities from the first moment in 2005, took over the chairmanship and used his life experience, his knowledge and his contacts to initiate and continuously accompany the work in the projects in schools in Matara, Sri Lanka ,
Even after giving up the presidency in 2010, he remained loyal to our association as a member and subsequently supported a godchild at Anura College. (The picture shows him on the very left, together with the first board of Neuwied-Matara-Friendship-Association of 2005)

We will keep Mr. Deckert, his commitment as 1st Chairman during the first five years of our association’s existence and his loyalty and membership until his last hour in appreciative memory.
