Dr. Alaa Murabit

Physician & International Peace Advocate

Born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Dr. Alaa Murabit has eclipsed her wildest dreams and achieved worldwide recognition for her roles as a physician and leading international advocate for inclusive peace processes.

Continuing her career of high achievements and countless accolades, this year, Dr. Murabit was honoured by the Nelson Mandela Foundation with the “Nelson Mandela Changemaker Award” an honour previously presented to the likes of Masai Ujiri, activist and president of the Toronto Raptors, and Julie Lewis, founder of the 30/30 Project.
