"He's a rock star and it is an honour to serve with the man."
A fine description of Mattias Wengelin, who has spent 10 years working to make Uganda waters safer. He is a role model for younger men/women, who are considering international development as a possible path. He is a mentor to others and has quietly gotten on with what is an incredibly tough, unforgiving job.
It is this dedication that has led to his nomination for a H.E.R.O. award (2016).
