This month,  one of the Directors of Befrienders For Disability, Mrs Terry Fairfowl, was given an award by the Wise Women Foundation. The Wise Women Awards, founded by Pastor Marjorie Esomowei of Wisdom for Women International, recognise the achievements of women in ministry across the denominational spectrum.

Terry won the 'Naomi' award, presented to 'to a Christian woman of mature years who is actively serving her church or local community through good works.' We believe that Terry more than fulfilled the requirements here!

BFD is thrilled that Terry's tireless efforts to serve people with disabilities both here in Northern Ireland and in Kenya have been recognised in this way. She is truly an inspiration to all of us!
