We are deeply saddened to announce that our longtime colleague and friend, Gerald Kraak, passed away on Sunday evening after struggling with cancer over the past several months.
Gerald was a Programme Executive for Atlantic’s Reconciliation & Human Rights Programme in South Africa, an award-winning author and a lifelong activist for human rights.
His creativity, passion and commitment to holding South Africa to its promise of rights and equality for all people was evident in all of his grantmaking for The Atlantic Philanthropies.
Our hearts go out to his family, colleagues and countless friends.
