MEMOSIAN News: The Passing of Mr. Abdul Rauf

It is with great sadness we share the news of the death of Abdul Rauf of Indonesia.

While he was a MEMOSIAN, he was the Assistant Vice President Organisation-Affairs of the National Olympic Committee of Indonesia. Upon leaving the NOC, he continued to use his vast knowledge in Sport to become Head of the Regulation Division at the National Federation of Bowling in Indonesia.

He was a part of MEMOS in English, 2004-2005 with his project titled “Designing and Creating a Strategic Plan for the National Olympic Committee of Indonesia”. His project is available for your reading and learning here, in the Olympic Libary. From Manuel Brito from Portugal, “I was very shocked by this news and I think of Abdul Rauf with great nostalgia. He was an excellent student and a good friend to me.”

He was 83 years old when he passed away from heart disease. Please enjoy these photos of Abdul Rauf provided by MEMOSIAN Hellen Sarita and Tutor Manuel Brito.
