Somalis ‘pleased’ as Ilham Omar elected to US Congress

Somalis praise the election of onetime Somali refugee Ilhan Omar to the US Congress. Omar fled Somalia’s civil war with her parents at the age of eight and spent four years at a refugee camp in Kenya. She and Rashida Tlaib have become the first two Muslim women elected to the US Congress.

Somalia’s only free ambulance service running out of cash

The only free ambulance service in Somalia, called Aamin Ambulance, is currently under-funded and may have to shut down. Ready to help everyone, whether they are victims of armed violence, a car accident or complications during childbirth, ending the service would be a disaster that costs lives.

Somaliland’s unstable currency leads to payment innovation

In the break-away republic of Somaliland, in the north of Somalia, hard currency is near-worthless, meaning people have to carry around large, inconvenient stacks if they want to pay with cash. As a result, many people are turning to an innovative mobile platform called Zaad in order to make their day-to-day payments.

Somali students volunteer to educate the dispossessed

Ravaged by decades of war, Somalia has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world. Successive governments, busy managing political crises and the threat of terrorism, have abandoned the field of education. Today, people who have fled their area and live in IDP camps are often not able to send their children to school, but citizen initiatives are changing that.
