Dr. Anthony Tanoh's Funeral Fund

On April 3, we lost a dear colleague and friend, Dr. Anthony Tanoh. Afer falling ill late last week, Anthony passed away in Abidjan on Sunday evening. 

For the last five years Anthony has served as Executive Director of Fondation Ariel Glaser pour la lute contre le Sida Pédiatrique, the EGPAF affiliate in Côte d’Ivoire. He first joined EGPAF in 2004 with Project HEART, and previously worked with the Ministry of Health in Côte d’Ivoire. Anthony is survived by his wife, Sidonie Grah, and three young boys. 

We have been in close contact with the family, the board and colleagues of Fondation Ariel and they are planning to hold the funeral on April 30th. Unfortunately, the extended family has no resources for a funeral.  Therefore, we will be accepting donations that will be forwarded to Anthony’s family to assist with the cost of funeral expenses. Knowing this is a real hardship, it is an opportunity for us to come together and support a special colleague and friend.
