We are so proud!!!
French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron visited our Desert Flower Center Paris! What an honour!
Located in Saint Denis, "Centre Fleur du Désert" is our fourth shelter for women affected by FGM in Europe. Together with friend and rock star Inna Modja, Waris Dirie takes over the patronage for the first French Desert Flower Center.
In 2013 Waris Dirie and the Desert Flower Foundation opened the first Desert Flower Center in Berlin in order to offer victims of FGM a hollistic treatment,
giving them a chance to reconnect with their body and a safe haven!
But this was just the beginning!
In the years ahead, filled with hard work, we opened three more Desert Flower Centers in Amsterdam, Stockholm and Paris.
Today we are supporting hundreds of affected women!
Thank you Mr. President for honoring our work!
It needs more politicians to stand up for the one million women in Europe affected by FGM!
