I first met Helen Taylor Thompson in 1999, when she was President of Mildmay, and I was beginning my own involvement with the charity.
For the next twenty years that relationship blossomed, as together, we examined both old and novel ideas for taking Mildmay forward.
Her incredible determination, strong character, generosity and prayerfulness were the very foundation of all that she stood for as a deeply committed Christian leader with a missionary zest - a passion for the alleviation of HIV in her lifetime.
We learned much from her example and will treasure her memory and gifting, as we thank God for her blessed life and energetic devotion to the cause.
The Very Revd John Richardson, Chairman of Mildmay
