                  from Delphin Films Added

                  For many years, Nobel Peace nominee Dr Hawa Abdi has been a beacon of hope for 90,000 Somalis who find refuge on her ancestral land. Barely 19, Ilwad Elman returned to war torn Mogadishu to continue the work of her father, a human rights activist assassinated for pulling child soldiers off the streets and into schools. After witnessing the destruction of her homeland, former First Lady, Edna Adan Ismail, returned to Somaliland to build a hospital out of the rubble. ‘Through the Fire’ is a story of zeal, compassion and resilience. It shows how three heroic women helped hold their country together in its darkest hour. When the world abandoned them and their communities, they refused to give up or walk away. www.throughthefire.tv / @storyofcourage Director: Eunice Lau Producers: Arthur Nazaryan & Sarah Winfield Editor: George Carrara
