Dr. Hawa Abdi: Somalia under Siege
Newsweek published an article about Dr. Hawa Abdi's work in Somalia. She runs a refugee camp hosting 90,000 women and children and provides them with medical treatment. The article is adapted from the forthcoming Human Rights Watch book "The Unfinished Revolution: Voices from the Frontline in the Global FIiht for Women's Rights."
Dr. Abdi is also writing her autobiography with Sarah J. Robbins, which will be published in 2013.
Last week, Vital Voices welcomed Dr. Hawa Abdi and one of her daughters, Deqo Mohamed, for a roundtable discussion about their work in Somalia.
