Disabled People in Mogadishu!

The life of disabled or handicapped people in a war ravaged country like Somali is too hard for them to survive because those having their complete limbs and had health are having very bad humanitarian conditions in Mogadishu and its neighborhoods.

In this issues we shall observe the whole these handicapped people and possibly if there welfare agencies support them locally and internationally or not.

In this video you are watching, you see disabled people of all ages young and old and they have lost their limbs in different aspects.

You feel sorrow about their appearances and the problems they are facing time to time, lack of the required food and medicine, the surprising story is that there are not local and international agencies which support to these people, but millions of U.S dollars are always said to have been given to the Somali poor people in Mogadishu and its outskirts by the international donors, in fact that is used for other purpose and not given to the Somalis in the state mood.  

The handicapped people are beggars and there are no other means to seek and find their daily bread and in the course of they face humiliation, discrimination from the society calling them stupid words and they are very fragile ones.

The endless fighting between parts in the capital, Mogadishu worsened the lives of those and when the war starts, some of these can’t immediately run to the right direction to escape being blind, lame or mad and the fire may possibly kill and wound them as happened many times.      

In a council they always and debate their affairs (handicapped people) locate at Bulu-hubey in Wadajir district of Benadir region and it’s named Institute for disabled people.

We interviewed with deputy chairperson of this council, Mr. Abdulahi Hassan and he told Keydmedia the whole conditions of the handicapped people saying that they don’t get the required aid and care from in and out.

Surely if the Somali community help one another especially and give respect and collect charity among them and give to who are in need of help like these people, it would be great step forward and lead development and forget NGO’ foraging from people’s bad circumstances.

Hello, you watcher how do you think we can change the life of the disabled people living in the war torn city of Mogadishu?

I read your article on Foreign Policy with keen eyes and interest. While whining from public officials does not deserve response from any sensible citizen of the Republic of Somalia, I felt compelled to counter false narrative with more objective analysis.
