Ending the year 2011 was sad to the entire Ban Advocates team members in learning a very bad news regarding our respected friend and colleague Tesfay Haileselassie from Ethiopia, who passed away due to illness.
He was a very nice and helpful Ban Advocate support staff for the Ethiopian team for many years, as well as a recognized orthopedist in the city of Mekele, in the north of Ethiopia. He joined and supported effectively the Ethiopian BA team in several international conferences since 2008.
We will always keep Tesfay in our memory as being a lovely and extraordinary man, who embodied humanity. He was highly appreciated by the entire BA team and we will all miss him.
On behalf of the entire BA team, we send our deepest sympathy to his family.
