“I can personally testify to the fact of how helpful she was because of myself coming out of a traumatic experience and Dr Harding has dedicated her services towards counseling my son who was 4 years old.”

Meanwhile, Dr Dawn Stewart from also acknowledged the politician’s work and immense contribution to women here.

“I knew Faith for some time now. In fact in her teens, she has always mentored younger persons than herself and being a little bit younger than her she has always mentored me.”

Dr. Harding will be remembered for her phenomenal work as a women’s activist. She was a former member of the People’s National Congress Reform and also ran for the Party’s leadership post. She later resigned from the Party.
