Dr. Hawa Abdi nominated for 2012 Nobel Peace Prize
Vital Voices is pleased to share that Dr. Hawa Abdi of Somalia, who, with her two daughters, provides safe haven and medical services to thousands of refugees, has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2012.
Dr. Abdi's work urgently needs support now. Two weeks ago, part of her land was seized and sold by al Qaeda-affiliated soldiers, according to The Daily Beast. It is also reported that they kidnapped hundreds of children.
