"A lily of a day
Is fairer far in May,
Although it fall and die that night—
It was the plant and flower of Light..."Ben Johnson
With deep sadness and sorrow, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) regrets to announce the passing of Dr. Agnes Kallay nee Campbell which sad event occurred in Dakar, Senegal, on Saturday 31st July, 2021.
Dr. Campbell was one of the pioneer Commissioners of the National Human Rights Commission when it was established in February 2019. She contributed immensely to the establishment of the Secretariat and in laying all the requisite pillars which have brought us thus far. With distinction she served until her early resignation in February 2020 due to ill health.
Prior to joining the Commission, Dr. Campbell had worked with various organisations and institutions, at home and abroad, including the Ministry of Health, Royal Victoria Hospital as it was then known, and Action Aid International The Gambia.
We would wish to extend this sad news to H.E President Adama Barrow and his entire Cabinet, the Hon. Speaker and Members of the National Assembly, members of the CSO fraternity, the UN Agencies in The Gambia, and all friends and colleagues.
We pray that the Lord warmly welcomes her in His Kingdom. May her departed soul rest in eternal peace.
Funeral service of the late Dr. Agnes Kallay Campbell will be held at the Saint Therese’s Church at Westfield on Wednesday 4th August at 2pm.
