Mr. Sami Suleiman Al Nohait: We are very sorry to inform you that Mr. Sami Suleiman Al Nohait, our WAHO Vice-President and Executive Committee colleague, who has been such a great friend and supporter to WAHO for so many years, was taken seriously ill in December. This necessitated emergency surgery and a period in intensive care. Although we understand that his condition has improved slightly, at the time of writing he remains in hospital under the expert care of his doctors.

Eng. Abdulaziz Al Ghamlas, Deputy Supervisor General now responsible for the King Abdul Aziz Arabian Horses Centre in Riyadh, has recently advised us that it is likely to be many months before Mr. Sami Al Nohait can return to work. As it is clear that he will also not be able to travel for some time, it has regrettably been necessary for him to step aside, at least temporarily, from his position as WAHO Vice President. We feel sure that you will all join us in sending Sami Al Nohait our best wishes and prayers for a full recovery to health and fitness.

Marek Trela-220pxDr. Marek Trela: The Executive Committee has therefore unanimously agreed to appoint Dr. Marek Trela as Acting Vice President of WAHO in the meanwhile. The President and Executive Committee of WAHO would like to express their thanks to Dr. Trela for agreeing to step into this important position in our Organization, they are confident that he will have the full support of all our members.

Mr. Ali Shaarawi: At their meeting in November 2015, the WAHO Executive Committee voted unanimously to move Mr. Ali Shaarawi from the post of Consultant to full membership of the Executive Committee.
