Sisterland Director and Team Leader
"I was brought up in a home for war abandoned children. Living as part of a big family was quite a challenge. My experiences led me to have a passion for helping the less fortunate. I have project managed many humanitarian projects. Food security, child care, water borehole, homeless mums.
I love to sing at church. I have a lovely little girl called Alexandra.
I personally know many of the women who are suffering on the streets of Freetown to whom SISTERLAND will be a Godsend"
