Diana Ware (right in picture), our beloved and admired Wasafiri team member, died unexpectedly in Kampala on 3rd November.
She succumbed to the rapid onset of complications from a routine virus, passing away aged 31 at St. Francis Nsambya Hospital, with her family close by.
Diana was a truly remarkable woman. She inspired all who knew her with her moral courage, work ethic, compassion, and charismatic vitality. As Operations and People Manager for Wasafiri, we all enormously valued working with her. More importantly she became a much-loved friend. We will miss her so much.
Diana’s family will hold a memorial and funeral in Kampala this week. The memorial will be at the Ware Family’s home during the afternoon of Wednesday 7th November. The funeral will be at All Saints Church, Nakasero, during the morning of Thursday 8th November. Anyone interested in attending can email us for more specific details as we receive them. Several Wasafiri team members will attend. We can convey condolence messages to the family if you email us.
Wasafiri also plans to arrange a memorial gathering for friends and colleagues in Nairobi. We will share details when they are clear.
