Azzah’s story from our partner, Circle of Health International, is a tragic illustration of a war that has claimed tens of thousands of lives and pushed millions of others to flee, including mothers and mothers to be.

Kopernik'€™s stunning success in winning the Zayed Future Energy Prize, established by United Arab Emirates'€™ late founder and former president Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, has the potential to change lives for the better across Indonesia and the 24 other nations that Kopernik works with.
