Hanaa Ben Abdesslem
Tunisian-born Hanaa is a tireless advocate for the improvement of public health facilities and social services in Tunisia. She is currently the spokesperson for esmâani, a non-profit organization, forged in the wild optimism of the Arab Spring.
Esmâani’s main focus is to help with the social needs of the less fortunate members of Tunisian society. As well as arranging art shows and concerts, esmâani trains teams of volunteers who regularly visit health facilities and hospitals, offering support, warmth, friendship and financial support to the sick and needy.
Hanaa participates in all these activities as often as her work schedule allows. She also donates toys, entertainment equipment and has helped to refurbish play areas in several hospitals.
