James Oiler, a CARE staffer, passed away over the weekend in Uganda. James had been with CARE since 1996 and served in a number of different positions (including performing various security assignments). He knew the ins and outs of humanitarian work in Africa quite well and was highly regarded. I met James at a seminar a couple of years ago, and right off he struck me as a kind, warm and caring individual. Deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. James will be greatly missed.
