Martha owed a debt of gratitude

Dear Sir,

I learnt today that Martha Dismont is retiring from Family Centre.

Martha has been a part of my life on a personal level since 1992. To me, she is friend, family, mentor and woman extraordinaire.

The contribution Martha has made to this country and to countless other Bermudian families is immeasurable. I have watched what is Family Centre grow from strength to strength, starting from its humble beginnings in the Bermuda Sun Building on Victoria Street, to Sunshine House on King Street, which was gifted to her by the Sunshine League, another charity of which I am a former board member.

It is my belief that had any one of us been exposed to just a portion of what Martha has seen and experienced within our community, we would have run for the hills a long time ago. But Martha has stayed the course — for our people, our families and for our country.

Her strong leadership, passion and dedication have steered the direction of Family Centre, and the level of trust and confidence that she has built in our community is untold.

Martha is a strong woman of faith and she does not take no for an answer. She believes in the impossible, and expects each of us to do the same.

Martha Dismont, you have made a lasting impression on this island. Your legacy will live in and through the lives of all of us whom you have helped.

I wish you much success on the next phase of your journey.



Strong leader: Martha Dismont
