Dear HIC Members,
We are sorry to inform that Ted Anana, our dear and best Housing
Right Defender in the Philippines has passed away on May 29th 2011.
Hereunder the email we have received from Urban Poor
We will keep on posting articles about Ted to celebrate his
HIC GS Team
It is with sad hearts that we tell you Teodoro “Ted” Añana died May 29 in
the Philippine Lung Center, Quezon City. He had suffered for several years
from emphysema and other lung problems.
Ted deserves well of his country. He served the poor people of Bohol as a
parish priest; he worked in the National Secretariat for Social Action at
the Justice and Peace desk; he served with the armed militants of the
Martial Law era; and finally he worked with us at Urban Poor Associates from
1992 to the present. Denis Murphy and Ted founded UPA. He gave special care
to poor families facing eviction. We must honor a man who has given nearly
40 years of his life to his people.
He is survived by his wife Connie, three sons and a daughter, Margarita.
