It is with very heavy hearts that we share the news of James Brown’s passing over the weekend. James, one of our longest serving staff in Uganda, was a loyal and dedicated Action Against Hunger driver for over 25 years. Many, many staff over the years had the pleasure of working with James and the team in New York had the honor of hosting him for the 2015 NYC Gala where he received the annual international “Employee of the Year Award.” In 2017, B-Log featured a profile of James in which he discusses his work with AAH and exemplifies his selflessness and dedication to the life-saving work and mission of Action Against Hunger. On behalf of the B-Log community, we offer our deepest condolences to James’ family and colleagues in Uganda.
A brief message from Nathalie Rothschild, Associate Director of Logistics & ICT, AAH US:
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our long time team member. 25 years! What an achievement! Thinking about the hundreds of thousands of miles driven across the Great Lakes, the incredible amount of people transported safely, the tons of goods delivered, the amount of crazy situations he got us out of. He personified the best of AAH and what we strive to achieve. On behalf of the AAH Logistics team, thank you! You will be greatly missed and forever remembered by all!”
