I am humbled by your recognition of my achievement and appointment as Senator of the Egyptian Senate (2020-2025) and for being named The African Woman of the Year 2020.

Through the partnership with you, my dear sister, and Merck More Than a Mother Ambassador, H.E. Mrs. AUXILLIA MNANGAGWA, The First Lady of The Republic of Zimbabwe, I have been able to use my position as CEO of Merck Foundation to touch many lives and I would not have achieved all this without your help. Thank you very much, my dear sister.

Looking forward to using my new accomplishments to further push the agenda to break infertility stigma, educate girls, and train more healthcare providers in Zimbabwe.

Kind regards,

Senator Dr. Rasha Kelej
CEO Merck Foundation
Member of the Egyptian Senate (2020- 2025)
