It is with great sadness and shock that we share the devastating news of a tragic accident yesterday that has taken the lives of three of our A Rocha leaders Miranda Harris and Chris Naylor and his wife Susanna.
Peter & Miranda Harris (A Rocha Founders) and Chris Naylor (A Rocha International Executive Director) and his wife Susanna were heading to the airport after travelling in South Africa. They, along with their driver, were in a fatal and horrific car crash that claimed the lives of Miranda Harris, Chris and Susanna Naylor. Peter suffered multiple injuries, including broken ribs and collapsed lungs. Currently, he is sedated and in stable condition.
Words cannot describe our deep grief. Thank you for holding A Rocha, the Harris family and Naylor family in your prayers.
We do not have many more details at this time. There will be time for commemorating their lives, but for now, we are in shock and grief.
We will do our best to keep you posted as details emerge.
