Somalia's Mother Teresa - and Rambo

April 5th, 2013
09:29 AM ET

What do you get when you combine Mother Teresa and Rambo?

You get Dr. Hawa Abdi - at least according to a description from Glamour Magazine – who for thirty years has provided free health care to patients in her war-torn country of Somalia.

“They said that this big camp, this big hospital, to be run by a woman … it is impossible,” Abdi told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday. “Necessity is the mother of invention.”

Abdi’s daughter, Deqo Mohamed, is herself a doctor and helps run the clinic with her mother.

“We don't understand the power we have,” Mohamed told Amanpour. “Women have more than we think. We don't give ourselves credit. We can be leaders, we can say no, we can lead the society and we can make the rules.”

Watch Amanpour’s full interview with Dr. Abdi and Dr. Mohamed in the video above.

CNN’s Juliet Fuisz produced this piece for television.
