The Passing of a Friend in Kenya
With great sadness we have received the news that one of our longest friends and supporters was killed in a car accident in Kenya. To the family and friends of Rebecca Jepkemoi Cherono we offer our condolences.
From Henry Gold, Tour d'Afrique Founder and friend to Rebecca…
"I met Rebecca many years ago when she was working for World Vision in Jerusalem. We became very good friends often talking hours about Africa.
When ten years ago I decided to make Tour d'Afrique a reality, Rebecca was one of the people who I asked for advice and help in Kenya. Since then, she has been a valuable advisor as well as bridge for the Tour d'Afrique Fondation's bike donations in Kenya.
Myself and all of the TDA staff will miss you."

I worked with Rebecca in Perth, Western Australia and also visited her in Jerusalem. So sad to have just read the news. I think I remember Rosemary and Bernard when they were in Perth.
Would love to have some contact with Rosemary or maybe some other member of the family, if you could pass on my belated condolences. Rebecca was such a special person and we in Australia were so privileged to know her. I retired from WV some years ago. Love
Thank you for your kind comments, I think with all the preparations and many duties this either slipped my mind or I did not see it.
We miss her and contionously appreciate the work she did and the many people she touched.
