Abdulrazak Gurnah left Africa as a refugee in the 1960s amid the persecution of citizens of Arab origin under President Abeid Karume’s regime in Zanzibar where he grew up, when the peaceful liberation from British colonial rule led to a revolution. He was only able to return to Zanzibar in 1984, allowing him to see his father shortly before his death. Bravo to Abdulrazak Gurnah for his bravery and for the merit of his incredible novels!
Naomi is a student at the School of Nursing. She, and her classmates want to thank everyone who helped provide them with reusable menstrual care kits. Watch the video below to hear her words. Feminine products are hard to come by, and they are so appreciated. Normally, the young women would likely miss out on school during their menstrual cycle, but these kits have given them the ability to be present in class and miss out on nothing. Thank you!
