Princess Diana and the Causes Close to Her Heart

The people's Princess, who would have been 54 today, championed many causes – and touched countless lives

Luanda, Angola

On a Red Cross mission, Diana chats with Sandra Tigica, who lost her leg to a land mine, at an orthopedic workshop in Neves Bendinha. "There was not much hope for me or my country then," Tigica had said of Diana's Jan. 14, 1997, visit. "But Diana turned that around. Because of her, Angola was able to get help from the world."
