It is with great sadness that we learned of the unfortunate demise of Professor Iba Der Thiam (1937-2020), a renowned historian, pan-Africanist, leading scholar and a shining light of the African intellectual community. Professor Iba Der Thiam was former Minister of National Education of Senegal (1983 to 1988) and had a stellar record of service which will remain indelible in the annals of posterity. Indeed, with his passing, Africa, and the entire scientific community has lost a great monument, a trail-blazer and an intellectual of high repute

It is hard to believe 5 months have passed since the world was turned upside down. As the impact of COVID-19 continues to rage across the world, we at TrustAfrica continue to find ways to respond. In April 2020, we launched a COVID-19 Africa Solidarity Fund to support emergency responses across Africa in the face of this new virus. Through the catalytic support of this fund we havecontributed to the protection of the health of informal sector workers in Zimbabwe, the protection of women against GBV during nationwide lockdowns in West Africa, and provided relief funds for local communities to develop contextually relevant responses such as collective purchasing of goods, community gardens and more.
