A gala fundraising was organized in Victoria, Canada to raise funds for the Foundation. Over a 100 well wishers and supporters attended the event, which included a silent auction of items from India. Speaking on the occasion, Dr Darlene Clover, President of Martha Farrell Foundation-Canada remembered Martha. Martha’s loss is keenly felt, she said, both on a personal level as a close friend, and on the professional level as a committed educator, and a feminist activist. Her tragic passing in Kabul three years ago is both a personal and political loss.
