In Memoriam: Esther Smith 1927 – 2019


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of our long-time friend Esther Lillian Smith who passed away on May 27, 2019 at the age of 91.

Esther was a tireless volunteer at Hope and Healing International and after 22 years of volunteer service, the Esther Smith Award for Outstanding Volunteer Achievement was created in her honour, back in 2010.

This annual award recognized the efforts of volunteer contributions.

Esther was loved and cherished by all of us at Hope and Healing and she will be greatly missed and fondly remembered. We know that her legacy of love will live on in the smiles of the children her gifts and prayers transformed.
