Fearless Somali Doctor Stares Down Warlords - CBS News
It’s a star-studded annual event honoring celebrities, activists and athletes.
“We’ve celebrated the most famous women in the world, but the women readers tell us they’re the most moved by, year after year, are the women they’ve never heard of before,” says Glamour’s editor-in-chief Cindi Leive.
Women like 63-year-old Dr. Hawa Abdi and her two daughters, Deco and Amina, from Somalia.
This woman and her daughters are amazing.
She was born in Mogadishu, in a time of prosperity. Her mother died when she was 12, but her father was an educated man, who made sure she was able to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor.
She built a hospital on her property, and provides refuge on her property for thousands who have fled war conditions in Somalia.
That information and more is available on the website for her foundation, whose mission is, “… to ensure that no treatable condition shall ever be an obstacle to health.”
