Meet Madlien


"I don't know if I can't sleep because of fear, cold, grief, or the nonstop noise of the drones. My house is gone. My extended family is gone. I lost everything I had. I look at myself now, and I can't recognise me anymore. But I need to be strong and keep using my voice and strength to be alive and tell the world what is happening to us. My name is Madlien, and I dare to elevate the voices of Palestinian women."  

Read Madlien's story and learn about the impact of war on women in Palestine.
