Profile of a Peacemaker

Zahra Ugaas Farah says her mission in life is to champion women’s rights in Somalia and promote peace. When war broke out in the early 1990s, Zahra says she could not watch the unfolding chaos and bloodshed without taking action. In 1992, she established an NGO in Mogadishu called the Family Empowerment and Relief Organisation (FERO) to assist victims of the conflict and work towards long lasting peace.
