FIRST LADY VISITS 5 YEARS OLD RAPE SURVIVOR AT THE EMERGENCY HOSPITAL IN FREETOWN.
Madam Fatima Maada Bio payed an unannounced visit to the emergency hospital where she visited her 5 years old friend who was raped, as she fell in love with her brilliance and affectionate personality right from the first visit.
Few months before the ‘Hands Off Our Girls
Campaign, the 5 years old girl was brutally raped and doctors diagnosed a
damaged spine, which will prevent her from walking.
She is currently in a wheel chair and going through medical procedures at the emergency hospital.
The issue of the 5 years old survivor paved the way for premium to be laid on rape in the ‘Hands Off Our Girls campaign’, as Madam Fatima Maada Bio felt the desire to advocate for the protection of girls who remain vulnerable and prone to such distasteful and inhuman menace in society.
As a Mother of the nation and a champion for girls, she believed that the issue of rape should be totally frowned at and the nation should encourage and help integrate survivors into the society without discrimination or neglect.
