He also addressed the wife of the deceased.

“Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, the family, friends, and all those whose lives were touched by Charlo. May you find comfort in the memories you shared with him and in the knowledge that his work will continue to make a difference in the lives of others, especially the youth and workers of our region,” the Prime Minister said.

Charles served as CSA General Secretary from March 1988 to September 1997.

He was an International Youth Development Specialist and Strategy Advisor, advocating transformational approaches to youth development.
