Mogadishu Attack Victims Fundraiser

Donation protected
On 14 October, a horrendous attack has ripped through the Somali capital of Mogadishu, killing 300 innocent people and injuring over 300 others, making it the single deadliest terror attack in Somalia's history. We have received hundreds of requests from Somali Faces supporters to start a fundraiser drive.

The hospitals and ambulance services have been working tirelessly to accommodate the victims but are already struggling with the number of wounded. As a result, we want to raise funds for the overcrowded hospitals and ambulance service that are working round the clock, for free, to tend the wounded and save lives as well as providing financial assistance to the victims who have been affected most.

The funds raised here will be split between two uses:

Certain portions of the funds will be used to purchase additional ambulance vans, stretchers and communication tools for Aamin Ambulance. A ceremony will be held, and video will be recorded. Aamin ambulance is a free ambulance service that survives on donations, and as Somalia is gripping with its biggest tragedy in decades, we are raising partial funds to help them continue their noble work.

The other portion of the money will be given as financial assistance to the victims who have been most affected by the terrorist attack. As a registered organisation with a proven track record, we know how to discern between victims and non-victims, and will distribute the money at our discretion accordingly.

We are Somali Faces, a registered organisation and a storytelling platform that has catalogued the stories of Somalis from across the world. We utilise community engagement through social media and social fundraising through the power of storytelling. For our past transparent fundraising campaigns, please see:
