Honoring women for Women’s History Month:
Dr. Hawa Abdi with her daughters Amina and Deqa. These amazing women have provided food, shelter, and medical care to over 90,000 refugees who have fled the fighting in Mogadishu, Somalia, as well as essential training and education for nurses and midwives. They are saving lives every day, reducing maternal mortality by providing a clean environment for deliveries, and educating women and their children through a school and a women’s center they’ve created. — with Tamara Taitt and Michelle Fonte Birth Doula.
