Nadine Ramaroson

Nadine Ramaroson

Nadine was a role model to many for her work supporting women and the most vulnerable in her community. She was committed to helping the poor and homeless in particular.

Though her death was reported as an accident, the Ramaroson family, led by her father, André Ramaroson led an investigation that pointed to evidence that she had been murdered. She is reported to have died in a fatal accident occurred between Soanierano - Ivongo and Ste Marie - a story that has been refuted by her family.

She received numerous death threats for her bold political positions. Her case remains in court in Antananarivo (the capital of Madagascar).
