Tribute to Jo Cox

Jo Cox, in a picture shared by her husband Brendan

All of us at Theirworld are deeply shocked and saddened by the loss of Jo Cox MP.  Sarah Brown, President of Theirworld, worked closely with Jo and said: “Jo had a truly remarkable spirit and passion that shone through in her work with Oxfam and with me on our countless campaigns for women and children.  Jo cared about everybody but she reserved a special place in her heart for the most vulnerable and the poorest citizens of the world.  She was fearless, she was endlessly upbeat and she reached out to so many to join her cause.  Her mission was to make the world a better place. But above all else Jo had utter devotion to her husband Brendan and their two children Cuillin and Lejla.”
