Growing up isn't easy

This made me sad.....

A girl of around 14 came to see me at the team house we use in Freetown.

She was in tears and was in a real state because she thought she was dying. She had stomach pains and was bleeding.....

.......it was her first period but no-one had prepared her for it - the poor girl had no idea what was happening to her body.
