Somali government recaptures key port of Merka
Well-wishers have responded to the plight of the people affected by drought in some parts of the western regions of the country by sending donations, reported local media.
Finance minister Samsam Abdi Adhan relayed monetary and food donations to the mayor of Gabiley region Mohamed Omar Abdi on Sunday.
The handing over ceremony of the donation was held at the head quarters of the ministry of finance.
The finance minister stressed that it is important to help the communities affected by the drought. “I have officially handed over this aid which was sent by some of the Somaliland community in Dahraan and Jubeel towns of Saudi Arabia,” the finance minister was quoted by the local media as saying.
Customarily, many organizations and government agencies come to the aid of people affected by drought in rural areas.
