I am proud to be part of the dedicated team that works to save lives globally, including in my country of Sierra Leone. I still remember the day in 2010 I came for the job interview and saw in the lobby the photos of the smiling kids Edesia was helping. That’s when I knew I’d found a special place where I could give back all my blessings to those who were in the midst of a struggle to survive. After more than a decade of watching the company grow and have such a big impact on the lives of malnourished children, there’s still nowhere else I’d rather be.
