In loving memory – Arfah Nasution

7 September 2020 – Today we received the devastating news that our beloved friend and field biologist, Arfah Nasution passed away earlier this morning. Although she was only 29 years old, she was a true conservationist who dedicated her life to preserve nature.

At Cikananga we will remember her as an incredibly loving colleague and friend, with an outstanding passion to make a difference. For five years she has been part of the Cikananga community, as a softly spoken, loving character and talented biologist, that cared about life, nature, the animals, and people around her.  For her friends of the Cikananga & Wanicare team, Arfah stole our heart and will be missed dearly.
It was only weeks ago when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and the great help from many of our followers meant a lot to Arfah and her family. We want to thank everyone for their support, although we only know now that she could not win this fight.
Foremost we want to express our condolences to the family and Arfah’s friends at home in Sumatra.
Although her life was way too short, she made an amazing difference for the world with the limited time she got.
