"There was never a moment in my life that I said, ‘No, it's too much - I'm going to give up'. I feel that I have contributed something, because there are some good things that came out because of our fight – not only me, but also the people with whom I have worked. Of course, the sacrifices were there but I must admit that the burden was not too heavy. If I had to do it all over again to improve people's lives, I would do it – from A to Z" - Liz Abrahams
