Our little sunshine - Claudia
Our little sunshine - Claudia

Hello,

My name is Isatu Sidibay and I am writing this letter to express my profound gratitude to all sponsors and the Desert Flower Foundation’s team for their generous support. Without your help, my little daughter Claudia could not go to school because I could not afford it.

Claudia is only five years old and is currently in the second class of nursery school in Freetown. She really enjoys attending school and shares with me her numerous adventures experienced there with her new friends every day. I am very glad that my daughter can learn and play with peers. Claudia was always a very active and cheerful child and now has a chance to let off some steam having fun with other children.

Madifon By Fashion - Interview with Waris Dirie:

MbF: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE “DESERT FLOWER” AND THE BOOKS THAT FOLLOWED?
WD: Friends of mine convinced me to write a book about my life. They supported me through the process. Afterwards, no publisher wanted my story. I almost printed the book on my own expenses and giving it free of charge to schools and universities. In the end a publisher in New York bought the script and sold 12 Million copies. After this every publisher in the world wanted to publish books by me.

Dear Desert Flower Foundation team,

First of all I’d like to send a big thank you to all of you from Newton in Sierra Leone! There are no words that could express my gratitude for your help. Thanks to your support my granddaughter, Mary S. Taylor won’t be cut and has an opportunity to develop normally.

Mary is eleven years old and attends the sixth class at St. Francis Elementary School. She is a good student and also commits herself to many artistic events. Mary likes drawing very much and has a great talent for it. She can relax while drawing. And relaxing is exactly what my granddaughter needs, because she has really been through a lot in her short life.
