Dr. Hawa Abdi has treated sick and wounded Somalis since 1983, through famine and civil war, but Islamist rebels wrecked her life's work in one day in May last year.

Dr. Hawa Abdi has treated sick and wounded Somalis since 1983, through famine and civil war. But it only took one day for Islamist rebels to wreck her life's work.
