Eulogy for John O’brien

March 19, 2024

John O’brien and I first met in 2006 by a chance meeting in Lalibela at The Jerusalem Hotel in Ethiopia. He was the reason I was able to start my Charitable Foundation Eyes for Africa having introduced me to professor Redda in Buta Jira.

We were like minded people, always willing to go the extra mile to make a difference to other peoples lives. John brought over wheelchairs from Ireland for the disabled to improve their mobility and give them back some dignity. We met from time to time and shared many great stories of the success and struggles of his charity and EFA.

He passed away peacefully at his home. A life well lived. Never forgotten and always close to my heart.
