WYA family mourns WYA Africa RDO Vanessa Cherese


It is with extreme sorrow that we announce the untimely passing of our WYA Africa Regional Director of Operations (RDO), Vanessa Cherese Oyugi, on October 17, 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya. Vanessa joined the World Youth Alliance as a regional staff member for the WYA Africa this year office serving as Program Officer and later as RDO. She was taken ill a few weeks ago and bravely fought through it, having lived with Lupus. She leaves us sad but blessed for the time we shared together. We pray for her family and all she has left behind. She will forever be missed.

You may email the WYA Africa office at africa@wya.net if you want to send your condolences to her family.
