In 2012, Black Entertainment Television honored Dr. Hawa Abdi and her daughter Dr. Amina and Deqo Abdi at the Black Girls Rock! Award show. Since 1991, Dr. Adbi and her daughters have operated an internally displaced persons camp and hospital outside of Mogadishu where they care for over 90,000 people.

I produced and wrote this segment for the show.
