At over 1 million people, Somalia has one of the largest internally displaced populations in the world. It has been the scene of repeated military and 'humanitarian' interventions, dating back to the 1980s.

    Outside meddling and the pitting of factions against each other has sadly destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure and halted its development.

    Ummah Welfare Trust initiated its humanitarian aid package here in 2005. The charity has since tackled issues ranging from education to food and shelter.
