Dear Chefs, Colleagues, and Friends from all around the World,
With great sorry and very sad feelings, I have to inform you about the passing away of our dear friend Andrés Atapoma Simeón President APCCA (Peruvian Chefs Association).
An outstanding personality with a heart of gold who hosted one of our Board of Directors Meetings in his home country. It was his biggest dream to host us and we were proud to join him and all the members of APCCA and Worldchefs in Lima, Peru. The Board of Directors had an extraordinary experience with Peru at its best with all its treasures and jewels of culture, cuisine, and hospitality. Peru is a beautiful country with stunning cuisine and so many talented chefs.
For us culinarians, this is a very great loss, especially for all the Peruvian Chefs and the hospitality industry.
Andres as APCCA President was a leader and role model. The chefs from all around the country respected him for his passion and commitment. He demonstrated great leadership, friendship, and at the same time a very big heart for all. He took all the efforts possible in his hands to make Peruvian Gastronomy special and receive recognition worldwide.
I would like to extend my personal condolences and those of the entire Board of Directors and global Worldchefs community.
We will miss you my friend and know GOD will take care of you on your journey to a better place. Our prayers will be with you and we as chefs will always remember you.
On a personal note, I must share with you that unfortunately his wife and son are very sick as well. APCCA (Peruvian Chefs Association) has asked us to make a plea for donations if possible from the Worldchefs community to help his family in their time of illness and need.
This is a big plea to all the culinarians willing to help who are welcome to contact Worldchefs Head Office email@example.com to coordinate or donate directly as listed below:

Message from APCCA Peru:
We express our deepest condolences to the family of our President Andrés Atapoma Simeón, who today departed to meet with the Lord.
Your teammates and colleagues will always remember you.
In life, you were a great representative of Peruvian cuisine, an excellent person, and a good professional. Death can take a body, but never memories and its spirit. Memories will fill us with joy and comfort us. His spirit will watch over us wherever he is.
May you rest in peace and may God be with you in his kingdom.
His wife and his son are also facing the same situation with the disease, for which we ask you, have to support them with a voluntary, significant financial contribution so that you can cover the expenses of burial and so together we can help your family.
