Memorial Ceremonies for Kofi Annan

The Annan family wishes to thank most sincerely the many who have expressed their condolences following the passing of Kofi Annan. The family has found great solace in the outpouring of love and support.

The Government of Ghana will shortly announce the arrangements for a State ceremony, which will take place in Accra. This will be followed by UN memorial events in New York and Geneva. The dates for those events will be announced in due course.

The family has kindly asked that no flowers be sent. For those still wishing to have their thoughts and support reflected in a gift, they suggest a contribution to the Kofi Annan Foundation.
