Waris Dirie back from Africa

19 Apr

I have spent the last 10 days in East-Africa, to meet our godchildren Safa and Idriss in Djibouti. I have talked to their teachers and parents, to learn more about their education. Safa spent one whole week with me, I dropped her at school at 7 o´clock in the morning, I picked her up and with the permission of her parents she was allowed to spend some nights in my hotel room.

I am very proud of her and we became very close friends. On my journey I met important politicians, ambassadors, entrepreneurs and NGO´s. I visited schools, orphanages and refugee camps, people live there in terrible conditions.

In autumn 2013 I will start with my Desert Flower Foundation important projects for women and children and I will tell you more about that in the next days and will need YOUR support.
