Profile of Eva Mokoka

The very embodiment of Letsema and Batho Pele, Sister Eva Mokoka put aside the pleasures of youth to embark on an arduous journey of improving the health conditions of her people.

In the words of the Managing Director of Otis Elevator Company, which opened a modern centre to replace the one sister Mokoka used to work at: “It is a tribute to the work carried out in the original clinic over the last 43 years by Sister Eva Mokoka and her volunteers”.

Indeed, Sister Mokoka has left a legacy which will always and for ever remind us of the loft virtues of selflessness and putting ourselves at the service of humanity.

No amount of words rolling off our tongues could be adequate in expressing the inner state of grace that characterises this immeasurable woman.
