After visiting Tanzania for the first time, it got a very special place in her heart. She never lost the special bonding with Tanzania, and more specifically with Fortunatus. Martus Foundation is more than an expression of this close friendship, it is an expression of a shared desire to help others. She hopes that Martus Foundation could realize its goals and make sure no people are disadvantaged in healthcare services as she believes that living a healthy life should be possible for everyone.
