Team in Madagascar

Laza Andriatiana, Director

For me, AiNA soa is a realization of common ideas that have developed over many years of friendship. When Nicole led her first team in Madagascar in 1996, they lived in my home town. Today the ideas have taken shape and a small plant has grown. I am happy to be a part of this team that will grow this plant. AiNA soa is a valuable platform where I can apply my skills and develop new possibilities. With us in the field, with you as a supporter at our side, with God’s blessing, we hope to touch many lives and change them for the better.

Ioly Andriatiana, Administrative Team Leader & HR

My name is Ioly Andriatiana. I am married to Laza. Together we have two daughters: Lilia, born 2004 and Irina, born 2012.

I work at AiNA soa for the following reasons: I see how important it is to improve the health situation in Madagascar. I wish that the Malagasy population is happy and healthy.

I appreciate Nicole, who brought the project to Madagascar very bravely, and all the people who support the project. I firmly believe that we can make a difference and change lives.

Maro Randrianangaly, Public Relations

My name is Ramaromahalasa Randrianangaly or simply Maro. I am married to Daniella, one of the doctors of AiNA soa. Together we have two sweet little girls. Since June 2016 I have been working as an assistant to the management and I am also responsible for the cars.

The poverty and poor health care in my country distress me. By working at AiNA soa I can commit myself to the dissemination of basic medical knowledge and first aid. I work towards ensuring that every Malagasy citizen knows what to do in case of illness and accidents. “Helping people to help each other” is a way of helping that I want to develop even more in my professional and personal life and with people around me. I give my maximum in my work and thus contribute to the development of the Malagasy population.

Jimmy Ralison, Accountant

Hi, my name is Jimmy Ralison. I’ve been working for AiNA soa as an accountant for many years. I am proud to be part of the team and it is a privilege for me to help build this organization. Even as a child I dreamed of working in an organization that helps people. It has always been my concern to help others and so I want to make it my profession, that’s me.

I will do my best for the success of AiNA soa. Thank you very much to all who support us practically or financially, God shall reward you a thousand times over.

Mirindra Rajoelison, Doctor, Medical team leader

Back then, when I applied to AiNA soa, I only did so because I needed a job. As time went by I was able to see the beautiful plan that God had prepared for me there in advance. At AiNA soa I can discover many talents that I did not know I had. I am happy to use these talents and thereby help Malagasy people.

Through my work in the organization I feel that I can contribute to the development of Madagascar and help Malagasy people to a better life. It is a special place where I can develop personally and professionally. Because united by the faith and vision of AiNA soa and God’s good will, I experience the community with my work colleagues, who only want the best for me, very positive and enriching.

Rado Rodison, IT-Technician & Videographer

My name is Rodison Radoniaina Sergio, they call me Rado. I am married and have 3 children (two boys and a girl). Since July 2016 I have been working as a computer technician at AiNA soa. I like what I do because I can contribute with my skills to fulfill our mission. By producing good teaching material I support the team. My wish is to contribute to the main goal of AiNA soa – to help all Madagascans to a better life and avoid unnecessary death. I am grateful for my work with AiNA soa, thank you very much.

Ny Ony Dulin Rakotonirina, Doctor

I am Ny Ony, one of the new doctors at AiNA soa. I will be getting married in a few weeks (December 2020), if God is willing. Currently, I am still in my trial period. The work and everything I am learning right now at AiNA soa motivates me a lot to stay.

Even before working here, I really enjoyed teaching people and sharing my knowledge with everyone I know or meet. This is probably because most of my family members are in the education sector, so I grew up in this field. I always wanted to be a doctor and a teacher at the same time. I always wondered how that could be possible. Fortunately, God led me to AiNA soa, for which I am very grateful. Because it gives me the opportunity to realize my dream. I really admire what AiNA soa is doing and it fits my ambitions perfectly. I thank the whole AiNA soa team who welcomed Tsito, Tojo and me wholeheartedly and with pride.

I am now looking forward to passing on the knowledge of first aid for accidents and diseases to my fellow countrymen. I also enjoy passing on the topics on how to prevent common diseases in Madagascar or how to live healthy. My vision and desire is to see the development of my country through the development of AiNA soa and its works.

Tojosoa Arivelo Razakarimanga, Doctor

My name is Razakarimanga Tojosoa Arivelo, I am 28 years old and single. On November 16, 2020 I was allowed to start as a doctor at AiNA soa – together with Ny Ony and Tsito – in order to work as an first aid trainer in the future. At the moment I am in the trial period. I really hope that I will definitely join the team at the end of this period.

My motivation in life is to help other people. No matter what the circumstances are or what has happened. I think that by working at AiNA soa, I can realize this goal and help my fellow countrymen. I am grateful to all the people who invest effort, time and money to make the work of this non-profit organization possible. I hope that this organization will continue for a long time and that the knowledge of first aid will be spread throughout Madagascar. May God accompany us through this adventure with AiNA soa.

Manoela Tsitohainandrianina Raonivelo, Doctor

I am a doctor and some time ago I had my own office in a small community on the outskirts of the capital Antananarivo. My strength was that I took a lot of time with all patients to explain to them in detail their disease, the possible consequences as well as the treatment. After all, the purpose is for them to understand the disease so that the treatment can be optimized. It seems like a small thing, but I think it helps them to prevent complications.

Although I had not heard of AiNA osa before, I am happy to have become part of the team in November 2020. I am discovering that what AiNA soa does is exactly the same as what I did for my patients before. Most people in Madagascar don’t have first aid skills and don’t know what to do when they face simple, health problems at home or in their village. I believe that if everyone is given the appropriate knowledge, they will be able to face these health problems.

Sharing knowledge to save lives: this is the mission of AiNA soa. This important cause deserves respect and it motivates me a lot to get committed to it. I don’t know yet how long I can stay in the team of AiNA soa. But I am sure that I will contribute to the development of my country in my daily work.
