On Friday 30th December 2022, Her Excellency the First Lady of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Dr. Fatima Maada Bio and the Julius Maada Bio (JMB) Women’s Wing and Associates (JMB) paid a pleasantly surprising visit to the Cottage Hospital where they presented Christmas Gifts and messages of hope to patients.
In the Children’s Ward, a parent with a sick child expressed her ever-ending admiration for the First Lady, whose leadership in protecting women and girls from the scourges of teenage pregnancy, early marriage, rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence, is second to none.
“It is as a result of this that I named my daughter after you, Fatima,” she narrated.
The First Lady, moved by the honour, offered prayers for the speedy recovery of her namesake and other children.
