“My dearest Deborah & Iyabo,
I am lost for words of praise and admiration for you Deborah for all you do and for your love and passion for humanity, for the people of Liberia and for women who have nothing. You are so special! Where others are running away, you are running to it to help make some weary soul smile and have something to eat!
You are beautiful inside and outside!! You make things happen and make all the difference in the lives of so many women here in Liberia and around many other countries! You are unique and so creative!
Thank you so much for coming to Benson Hospital this morning and for bringing that glow and spice to Benson! All the health workers as well as patients were smiling when they saw you today. There has to be something captivating and magical about you as the whole Hospital became more alive at your visit! I really appreciate you Deborah!!
Thanks a million for everything!! And to think that you have been coming to Liberia for several years and even to my Rotary Club of Sinkor and we never met until my niece – just like a sister introduced us. This must be God’s time for us to meet and it is the BEST!!”
I humbly replied to say I was simply reflecting back to her and her team all the love and joy I was receiving from them, which is the truth! It was a life-changing experience being with them. I will forever remember Dr. Benson’s love and dedication as we checked on so many of her patients. “How you coming on?” she would inquire; “Trying, small small,” was the usual reply.
How did I ever get so blessed to be able to be here at this moment? It never would have been possible without all of you and your unwavering support. Tremendous tears of joy and gratitude ~ Deborah
