Ollie’s Interview with Sheik Conteh, MSF Field Nurse

We were very lucky to be invited to the Young International Festival of Authors in Toronto.

Over 200 children participated in our session! Together, we learned more about “Ollie’s” journey and her campaign to Spread the Peanut Paste Prescription. But the highlight of our session was talking to MSF field nurse, Sheik Conteh, who joined in the session from Uganda.

We are happy to share with you some of the questions the children at the Festival had for Sheik—and his very inspiring answers.

C.R.E.N.I. Photographers

During her trip, Ollie meets many people. And while in Zinder, Niger, Ollie visits two types of hospitals and sees for herself how the children are being helped. One of these hospitals was the Centre de Récupération Nutritionnelle Intensive (CRENI) of Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). This is where she met some of the brothers and sisters of the children being cared for in one of the hospitals. These are their photos:

The C.R.E.N.I. Photographers Sing!

It’s me – Ollie. Let me introduce you to some of the children at the CRENI (nutrition hospital) in Zinder, Niger. I think you can get to know the children a bit through their singing.

I hope you enjoy it. I did.
