It is with a deep sorrow that ECPAT Eastern Europe and Central Asia network has to announce about the passing of our dear colleague Sanoat Solieva. Sanoat was a leader of the Femida (Themis) organization in Dushanbe, Tajikistan and a tireless advocate for women and children rights. She made a difference in lives of many women and children she supported. She was native of Samarkand, Uzbekistan, an important and active member of our network. We will remember Sanoat for her energy, wisdom, warmth, kindness and friendship. Her sudden death saddened us deeply. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
