Mariam Hassan will always be remembered as the voice of the Saharawi people.

In April 2014, Hassan headed to the refugee camps for her last appearance at FiSahara, an international cinema festival that takes place every year in the camps. Hassan wanted to give her last performance after she received the tragic news that she had only a short time to live due to her cancer coming out of remission. Going back to the camps, she was welcomed by thousands of Saharawi who either wished to hear her for the last time or to say their goodbyes. The night Hassan gave her last concert, she began with an emotional pledge by thanking her people for allowing her to be their voice and also asked for their forgiveness for not being able to continue to fight for their cause for self-determination. Hassan will always be remembered as the voice of the Saharawi people.
