A delegation from Sierra Leone took part in the first international Civil Society and Inclusivity Conference last week in Helsinki. The conference was organized by Finn Church Aid, Finnish Foreign Ministry and UNDP, and the delegates represented fragile states such as Afganistan, Somalia and Sierra Leone. SLOF was invited to meet the delegates and participate in the evening program as representatives of the Sierra Leone Diaspora in Finland. SLOF executives also had a separate meeting with the delegates to discuss co-operation.
The Sierra Leone delegation was led by Hon. PC Sheku A.T. Fasuluku Sonsiama III, here with conference organizer Mr. Jussi Ojala from Finn Church Aid.
