Dr. Fatima Maada Bio First Lady of Sierra Leone met with Development Partners at her Goderich Office to plan for the Commemoration of UN World Day
Dr. Fatima Maada Bio, First Lady of Sierra Leone, met with Development Partners at her Goderich Office to plan for the Commemoration of UN World Day (November 18th) for the Prevention and Healing of Child Sexual Exploitation, Abuse, and Violence. The First Lady of Sierra Leone led the advocacy for the UN resolution establishing November 18 as the international day for the prevention and healing from child sexual exploitation, abuse, and violence.
This year’s commemoration is motivated by this resolution and will span over three days (17, 18, and 19 November 2023). The event will include prayers at mosques and churches, a gospel concert with international artists, and a provisional special package for victims to enhance their healing. Dr. Maada Bio hopes that by the end of the three-day event, some victims will receive support to continue their lives on a smooth path.
