Leah Chishugi: A Long Way From Paradise
A memoir of all memoirs…Leah Chishugi’s story is so compelling, I had to ask where she gets the strength to carry on? A formidable woman and a humanitarian at heart, I am in awe of her bravery. To survive a genocide is no joke but to watch your uncle killed in front of you and his heart chopped out of him while you watch, that is enough to send anyone to a mental institution. If I keep writing, then I am silly and don’t get it. Please, watch this video of Leah at a recent Frontline event and support her by getting a copy of her book, A Long Way From Paradise.
Leah’s humanitarian work involves helping women in Eastern DRC rebuild their lives. She runs the Charity, Everything Is A Benefit
