Despite coronavirus we have also achieved a lot in 2020

The last year once again in review

Waris Dirie looks back on a challenging year.

Opening of our first Desert Flower schools, distribution of radio equipment for distance learning, new sponsorships - we did all that in 2020 thanks to your donations!
