Lending Hand #MogadishuMassacre

Campaign Story for the Somalia tragedy:

On Saturday, October 14, 2017, the people of Somalia, particularly those living in the capital city of Mogadishu, have suffered the worst terror attack in the history of the nation.  

- Over 300 civilians were killed
- Nearly 600 civilians were injured
- The dead include, men, women, children and youth that were newly medical graduates & aspiring youth activists

Somalis are resilient and are united in overcoming this.  Unfortunately, the Somali government does not have the capacity to support the victims of this tragedy on its own. Therefore, Adar Foundation for Reparation & Development of Somalia plans:


- Provide the necessary support to help these families cope with life without the breadwinners of the families
- Connect these families with people who are able to provide counseling services to reduce the impact of the trauma
