Very sad news today. Our friend and Capacity Development Leader passed away on Friday, 20th March 2020 in MP Shah Hospital, Nairobi.
His many contributions, sharp mind, warmth and sense of humour, will be deeply missed. Mehmood had a very calm, professional and supportive style that made him very effective and popular with partners and students, with specific mention of the African Orphan Crops Consortium and the African Plant Breeding Academy, led by UC Davis.
Mehmood Ul Hassan, Muhammad leaves a wife (Balqis) and three daughters (Beenish, Sidra and Sana). We offer our deepest condolences during this very difficult time.
Mehmood, may your soul rest in eternal peace.
