ABOUT THE FILM
‘Through the Fire’ shows a side of Somalia and Somaliland beyond the familiar reports of piracy, conflict and famine. It tells the stories of three heroic Somali women, Dr Hawa Abdi, Edna Adan Ismail and Ilwad Elman, who have each led groundbreaking humanitarian initiatives that have sustained their communities for years. In the face of incredible obstacles, these women have worked tirelessly to spearhead efforts towards peace and renewal, laying foundations for health, education and social infrastructure.
Please help spread the word. All are welcome.
