Tribute to John Moshal

Today we at CHIVA Africa wish to celebrate the wonderful life and contributions of John Moshal.

Whilst we mourn his sad passing we also wish to celebrate his life and the significant contribution he made to CHIVA Africa and numerous other organisations working in South Africa and beyond.

For over 15 years, John has steadfastly supported our work in South Africa and has been not only our major donor over the years, but also one of the major champions of our work. Over many decades John committed not just money, but also his time and expertise to enable CHIVA Africa to fulfil our mandate to improve the health of children and adolescents living with HIV in South Africa. He also provided us with strong leadership and guidance, and often cast a critical eye over our work to ensure we were remaining on track. All of this he did with kindness, humour and a generosity of spirit that made him a true delight to interact with.

As Chairman of our Board of Trustees, John led the organisation with dedication and focus. With a sharp eye for detail and a passion for our development, he supported the CHIVA Africa team to continually learn and develop and to respond to the rapidly changing health landscape in South Africa.

His legacy lives on as we remember his wise words and work to fulfil our mission in his honour.

Our sincere condolences to all those grieving his loss, and especially to our founder Dr Karyn Moshal and the extended Moshal family.

With warm regards,

Juliet Houghton
