Message from CEO of Merck Foundation, Senator Rasha Kelej, on being recognized as one of the 100 Most Influential African Women 2020


Proud to be selected as one of the 100 Most Influential African Women in 2020 as part of 'Be a Girl' Initiative. Thank you all for recognizing my efforts and Merck Foundation’s commitment towards building healthcare capacity, empowering girls in education so that they can reach their potential and pursue their dreams. I promise to continue to empower women, support girl education, and build healthcare capacity in Africa, Asia, and beyond.

This is my second time, last year (2019) I was selected to be one of the 100 Most Influential Africans released by UK based New African magazine, for the poignant “Merck More Than a Mother” Movement.

Kind Regards,

Dr. Rasha Kelej
CEO of Merck Foundation
President, Merck More Than a Mother
One of the 100 Most Influential Africans (2019 & 2020)
