Corps340 Podcast #50: Hanifa Nakiryowa

We’ve been fortunate on the Corps340 podcast to talk with some remarkable folks in the past two years but none has had a story of perseverance like that of today’s guest, Hanifa Nakiryowa.

The native of Uganda was the victim of a horrific acid attack in December of 2011. To characterize Hanifa solely as a victim would be a mistake, as it would be to say she is just a survivor. She is a woman determined to thrive, to advocate, and to champion others. Perhaps most importantly, she is a strong parent to her two daughters so that they will do the same.

The founder of the The Center for Rehabilitation of Survivors of Acid and Burns Violence (CERESAV) takes us through her remarkable journey from that day in Kampala to her work here in Pittsburgh. Please visit https://ceresav.org/ to learn more about Hanifa’s mission.

Listen on LibsyniTunes, and Soundcloud.
