Kim Simplis Barrow is named Woman of the Year by U.K. Magazine

Kim Simplis Barrow

Special Envoy for Women and Children Kim Simplis-Barrow, wife of Prime Minister Dean Barrow, has been named Woman of the Year 2013 by Complexd Woman.  The UK publication chose Simplis-Barrow, along with pediatric Surgeon Dorothy Kufeji, after being featured in a 2011 issue of the magazine.  Her courage and determination in fighting breast cancer and continuous efforts at raising awareness about the disease landed her on the cover of the Women of Strength issue a year later.  In June of last year, Simplis-Barrow, during a visit to the UK, called on Evelina Children’s Hospital, during which she was given an opportunity to speak with the staff of the facility.  Kufeji would later contribute significantly to the Belize Children’s Trust Charity Gala, the proceeds of which will be used to support a number of initiatives in Belize.
