Keeping Hope Alive

KSh 2,000

For the last twenty years, Dr. Hawa Abdi and her daughters have run a refugee camp on their family farm not far from war-torn Mogadishu, which has grown to shelter 90,000 displaced Somalis: men, women and children whose lives have been shattered by violence and poverty and who are in urgent need of medical attention. She founded a one room clinic in 1983, but then the Somalian government collapsed, famine struck and aid groups fled. So she allowed displaced people to find refuge on her 1300 acres of farmland.
