Razia’s Ray of Hope bestows award on Duxbury resident Dr. Carol Langford

Razia and Carol LangfordWicked Local Duxbury: Razia Jan believes Dr. Carol Langford to be an amazing woman.

When Jan asked Langford to lunch one day, Langford did not know that she had been chosen to receive the second annual Amazing Woman Award from Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation.

Considering all that Jan has done to advance the lives of young girls by founding the Zabuli Education Center in her native Afghanistan, among other humanitarian efforts, Langford was surprised and humbled. She thought about who else might be more worthy, but she accepted the honor from Jan.

“I felt unworthy with all Razia has worked for and all she has done, but you can’t say no to Razia,” she said. “You have to help Razia.”
