To her colleagues, Aunty Hawah was known for her passion, humor, warmth, and generosity of spirit. She created a safe environment, which nurtured love, support, diligence, and hard work. To her family, she was just the same. She shaped the lives and careers of her nieces and nephews whom she inspired.
Aunty Hawah was a humanitarian at heart and one day had the dream of buying her “one-way ticket to Monrovia”—the title to a song she loved. With many attributes, she brought people together.
She valued education and her life was marked by hard-work, dedication, and ambition at a young age before working with MSF. Her personal story was published in a United States textbook for middle school, “Our World”.
Her passing on 8th of December 2005 left a stain in the hearts of her colleagues, and friends, but most especially on her family. HVK Children’s Foundation remembers our aunt, as her legacy is still alive for those who would never experience her kindness.
