BES School Director
No words are adequate to express our deep shock and sadness at the untimely deaths of Angela and Philip Mandalios, due to a road accident in Libya: they were on a mission to bring help from Greece to the surviving victims of the Derna catastrophe.
Angela and Philip, of Greek/Austrian nationality, were brought up in Benghazi. They completed all their Primary School education in the British School and most of their Pre-University Secondary education at the European School. In both schools they were excellent students from an academic point of view and fully involved in all aspects of school life and community care activities. They cared deeply about Libya and, in many ways, considered themselves to belong to Libya and even spoke Arabic quite fluently.
The shock and sadness of losing such humanitarian and caring young people is something our community will find it very difficult to process. Our thoughts and prayer go out to their parents, Gisela and Kanakis and their sister Lilian. It is unimaginable the pain and suffering they must be going through. Last week was a week of joy and happiness celebrating Angela’s wedding to her young husband Dimitri. How this young man must be suffering defies thought.
Angela and Philip will be forever missed by our little community in Benghazi. May They Rest In Peace and let us all try to support their family and friends through this truly harrowing time
