Tributes pour in as Alison McLean passes

THERE HAS been an outpouring of praise and sympathy from local and international organisations in reaction to the passing of Alison McLean, former head of the Child Development Agency (CDA) and United Nations (UN) representative.
She was 59.
McLean, also a former permanent secretary in the Ministry of Entertainment, Gender Affairs and Sport, was the representative for the UN Women Multi-Country Office (MCO) for the Caribbean up to the time of her death.
She died Sunday night after ailing for some time.
McLean, née Anderson, served as representative of MCO Caribbean from May 2017 up to her death.
“Alison led the MCO Caribbean for three years and in that time we were able to learn from her expertise, shared in that distinctive and will-be-forever missed pitch of voice. We learned her love for all things Jamaican and Caribbean. Like the Caribbean, Alison was ‘likkle but tallawah’,” the UN message read.
