Following the closed-door meeting at QFFD, she headed straight to the Multaqa; venue for the closing ceremony of the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH).

The Closing Ceremony of the successful WISH event was colourful and brilliant with the distinguished and globally acclaimed Sierra Leone First Lady prominently recognised.

The Queen of Qatar, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser Al-Missned, together with the President of FIFA, Gianni Infantino flanked the Sierra Leone First Lady on the front row as the VVIPs watched the edifying proceedings.

Dr. Mrs. Maada Bio and her delegation are expected to depart Qatar for Sierra Leone soon after days of several successful engagements which commenced with her arrival in Qatar on 2nd October 2022.
