    I remember walking in the crowded caring ward of Festula Hospital In addis Ababa when I was in my early teens, this is about twenty years ago. The main reason why i was visiting was to see my older sister Dr Mulu Muleta (We are not actually brothers and sisters but her love and her parents sacrifice to save mine made us brothers and sisters forever). I remember her dedication and care for the young patients, I admired her talent in performing multiple surgeries and act as if she was doing nothing, no bragging, or taking credit. Her intention was always helping the child in front of her and move on to the next one. She is without a doubt a “strongest women” I ever met.

    She is also a great and loving mother to her childrens. A role model for her brother’s and sister’s.

    I love you Mulu. Congratualtion.
