Follow Zaynab as she flees to Egypt with her sister. Feel the love she is greeted with in America when she joins her mother and two sisters she has never met.

"In America I found MY REFUGE, and my education. Now I use MY VOICE and speak out in order to promote more justice in the world." - Zaynab Abdi
The stunning black ink drawings come from the pen of Egyptian born artist Ashraf El-Attar. Voice for Refuge will be a powerful addition to classrooms and school libraries, expanding their collections to include the voice of Black, Muslim, Middle Eastern immigrant girls and women.
