Halima Bashir

Halima Bashir grew up in the remote deserts of Darfur, Sudan, in a loving family that was part of the black African Zaghawa tribe. She was sent to junior and secondary school in one of the large towns of the region, a rare privilege for a girl from the village. She proved herself to be academically gifted and went on to be the first person from her sub-tribe, the Coube clan, to ever study medicine at university. She qualified as a medical doctor in the same year that war broke out in Darfur, whereupon her life sprialled into an unimaginably dark nightmare, In 2005 she fled her homeland and sought asylum in the UK.
