Good Bye, Tea!

Good Bye, Tea!

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Tea Tihounova, our Head of Mission in Zambia, a wonderful leader, dear friend, the embodiment of kindness, and a truly rare soul.


Tea passed away on Monday evening at Fairview Hospital in Lusaka, after a short but serious illness. Our grief and confusion right now are little compared to what Tea's family and loved ones must be going through. At this difficult time, let us take solace in the fact that she loved her work.

Tea was an extremely hard-working and gifted professional. When she arrived in Zambia in 2013, she was alone and had a challenging task. To set up a new CCR mission in Western Province from scratch.

But Tea managed to do that. And achieved so much more.

Within five years, our mission expanded to 5 provinces. In Zambia, CCR currently works with more than 200 staff members. We implement development and humanitarian projects in agriculture, education, health and social protection sector. The people whose lives have been improved through Tea’s dedication to CCR vision and humanitarian ideals can now be counted in thousands.

We promise to continue Tea’s legacy through hard work and total commitment to our clients. Please join us in celebration of her short but outstanding life.
