It is with the deepest sadness and regret that we announce the death of Juconi’s Director General, Alison Lane, aged just 54. Alison had been hospitalised for some weeks following complications arising from a spider bite and suffered a fatal heart attack on 11th July. We extend our deepest condolences to her family for their tragic loss.

Alison devoted 25 years of her life to Juconi during which time she has transformed the lives of countless street children who have been reintegrated with their families and who again have access to education and healthcare. Furthermore, in addition to her work in Mexico, she has helped and trained other organisations around the globe to better understand family violence and to provide practical solutions.

Her immense contribution to this field was recognised in 2003 when she was awarded an OBE in Her Majesty the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Furthermore, under Alison’s stewardship, Juconi was awarded best practice by UNICEF.

Alison will be greatly missed by her colleagues, partner organisations and friends worldwide.

A replacement Director General for Juconi will be sought and expressions of interest for the post have already been received from within many of the world’s leading children’s organisations. Further details of the new appointment will be provided in due course.
