Since April 2014 the young female medical doctor Frances Sesay works for the Desert Flower Foundation Sierra Leone and is in charge of the medical care and control of our sponsored girls. The girls love Dr. Sesay who was trained in the US and Sierra Leone. She visits the girls who live in different parts of the country regularly, checks their integrity and treats various diseases. Before Dr. Sesay started to work with the Desert Flower Foundation she was employed in the office of the Sierra Leone’s First Lady Ms. Sia Nyama Koroma and was in charge of various projects for the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNFPA.
“I’m very proud to be part of the Desert Flower Foundation and to work for this important organization. Waris Dirie and her organization have enormously contributed to eradicate FGM in Africa. FGM brought so much suffering to our girls and women”.
