I was deeply saddened to learn of Mr. John Arku’s death and I would like to express my sincere sympathy to Liberia YMCA and his family on behalf of Africa Alliance of YMCAs . Mr John was highly respected staff throughout Liberia YMCA. He was regarded as a visionary leader by people he worked with.
Mr John’s contributions to Liberia YMCA during his 40 years of dedicated and selfless service to young people from the Yekepa YMCA branch to the national headquarters, were many and varied. His contributions to the YMCA will not be forgotten.
Heartfelt condolences to Liberia YMCA and his family at this difficult time. Mr John was a remarkable man. History will surely remember his commitment, service, passion and the kind of mentor-ship he provided for young people in Liberia. Many will miss him. May God receive his soul with peace and love as he rests on.
With sincere sympathy,
General Secretary AAYMCA
