It is with very deep regret that we announce the passing of our In-Country Agent in northern Borneo, Zulkalani ‘Zul’ Sha.
Zul, who worked for Asia Ability and married only last year, had been ill for several months but the news still comes as a shock to everyone connected with World Challenge, particularly the south-east Asia planning team.
Zul worked alongside us for the past seven years and assisted an impressive 301 expedition teams during this period.
Ollie Jones, World Challenge Continent Manager (SE Asia), said: “During his time as In-Country Agent, Zul enjoyed joining many of the expedition teams as their jungle or mountain guide, and also took every opportunity to be involved with their community engagement phase.
“Zul always had a smile on his face and was a truly wonderful example of everything that World Challenge stands for. We will miss him.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this extremely difficult time.
