For four decades, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, younger sister of Mawlana Hazar Imam, His Highness the Aga Khan, and Prince Amyn Mohamed Aga Khan, has worked with the Alzheimer’s Association to fight the disease that contributed to the death of her mother, Ms. Rita Hayworth, at the age of 68. Princess Yasmin was compelled to turn her personal pain into a positive force and she founded the Alzheimer’s Association’s Rita Hayworth Galas to fulfill the Association’s Vision, “A world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia®”. The work of the Association is accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. Simerg’s sister website, Barakah, which is dedicated to His Highness the Aga Khan, members of his family and the Ismaili Imamat, brings to its readers a special piece highlighting the life of Princess Yasmin and the forthcoming Rita Hayworth Gala on April 23, 2022 at the Hilton Chicago, an event that is being held in person and that will be attended by Princess Yasmin.
