Inspiring Christian Missionary Honoured in Scottish Parliament

A well known missionary has been honoured in the Scottish Parliament, in a debate marking last Sunday’s International Women’s Day.

It has been a century since the death of Mary Slessor, a missionary to Nigeria who was raised in the slums of 19th century Dundee.

After leaving Dundee she went on to save the lives of hundreds of men, women and children. Her legacy continues in the Mary Slessor Foundation, a charity which still operates in Nigeria today.
