Charles Nigel de Silva – Supporter, mentor, friend.

Beyond Borders is deeply saddened by the death of Nigel de Silva – a close friend of Beyond Borders and personal friend to many at BB.

Nigel came into the world of Beyond Borders shortly after the inception of BB, as a facilitator, a resource-person and mentor, and a valuable asset to the HIV/AIDS related programmes of BB. He was always full of advise and insights, and had a knack for clicking with young people – the key audience of BB.

His work was at his heart, and Nigel won the hearts of many who had the privilege of working alongside him. His sharp wit meant that work that would otherwise be tiresome and grueling would be rendered into a fun exercise – and he manged to leave a lasting impression on every single person who listened to him speak passionately and emotively.

But the magic of Nigel was off the field of work.

Nigel became a close friend to many at Beyond Borders. A much loved persona who entered – and forever stayed – in our hearts.

Nigel will remain in the thoughts of all BB-ites and will be deeply missed – as a partner of BB, as a supporter, an advisor, a mentor, but mostly as a loved friend. May he rest in peace.
