Hadeel Qasim (Iraq)

Hadeel Qasim (Iraq) – Hadeel has made a tremendous difference to the lives of refugees, especially children who have been displaced as a result of conflicts. Hadeel was a refugee herself when her family fled to Syria when the Iraq war started in 2003. On returning to Iraq Hadeel decided to leave home and live in the dangerous and inhospitable refugee camps in extreme temperatures to serve in the field of child protection.
