I met Melanie this summer in Cape Coast, Ghana when she was working at Global Mamas. We had lively discussion about the organization and her work, there by the side of the ocean, she was serene and happy, intense and with passion. Her legacy has touched so many. We, who came to her via the YASC, are all so saddened to hear this loss. Sincerest condolences to Melanie's family and the Global Mamas that she worked for--Melanie will never be forgotten.
