Posted by on May 28, 2014 in most recent, News | Comments Off on Listen Again: Dr Edna Adan Ismail on Outlook Show

Tweet This event took place on Thursday 29 May at SPAN’s Silai Centre, 178 Easton Road, BS5 0ES at 3pm and 6pm. It was followed by a discussion with special guest Edna Adan Ismail. Dr Edna Adan Ismail is a former Somali First Lady and Foreign Minister from the self-declared nation of Somaliland. Edna is a relentless activist and has been campaigning for many years against the practice of Female Genital Mutilation. ‘Through the Fire’ is a film that shows a side of Somalia and Somaliland beyond the all-too-familiar news reports of piracy, war, and famine. It tells the stories of three remarkable Somali women, Edna Adan Ismail, Iwan Elman and Dr Alwa Abdi, who risk their lives to run essential humanitarian projects that have sustained their communities through decades of conflict. http://www.throughthefire.co.uk/home-2/      ...
