Wednesday’s Woman – Helping Women of War

I’m so happy to be back at Sperk* for this month’s Wednesday’s Woman post.

In case you’re not familiar, Kim at Sperk* has dedicated Wednesday on her blog as a day to honor positive, inspiring women in the world.

Today, Zainab Salbi is our featured Wednesday’s Woman.

Zainab Salbi is the founder of Women for Women International, an organization that helps educate, empower and brings hope to women survivors of war.

From the home page of her website at /www.zainabsalbi.com reads:

“I was born and raised in Iraq, I lived and worked in many war zones, I encountered displacement, I tasted loss, death and pain, and I believe! I believe in the possibilities of change. I believe in joy, in laughter and in dancing until the end. I believe in love and in forgiveness, and I am a witness to the possibility of healing. It is TIME for the new story to emerge. Welcome to my website.”

I hope you’ll stop over at Sperk* today to learn more about this week’s amazing woman and the work she is doing in the world.

I also urge you to scroll down and take the time to watch the video Kim has added at the end of the post, it is an important and incredible message from Zainab Salbi.

While you’re there, take a look around at what Kim is up to as well. She herself is a wonderful mother, writer, friend and woman. Her blog and her heart will move, challenge and inspire you.
