Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Ashwaq Moharram (Arabic: أشواق محرم; 1974/1975 (age 47–48)) is a Yemeni physician and activist, noted for her work dealing with starvation in the Yemeni city of Hudaydah.


Moharram is married with 2 children. In 2016 after working as a doctor for twenty years she was named one of the BBC 100 Women for her achievements. She was then living alone in Humaydah as her husband had taken their children to Jordan. Moharram has said of her work: "I'm seeing the same thing I used to watch on TV when the famine unfolded in Somalia. I never thought I would see this in Yemen." Moharram has worked for numerous international aid organisations, but since 2015 has worked independently, delivering medicine and food in her car, serving as a mobile clinic.
