Cerca de cuatro años después de retirar nuestros equipos de Somalia, volvemos a prestar atención de pacientes en el país. De esta forma, en colaboración con el Ministerio de Salud, apoyamos al Hospital Regional de Mudug, al norte de Galkayo, en la región de Puntland.
Así, en mayo comenzamos a prestar apoyo al programa de alimentación terapéutica del hospital, y en junio al servicio de pediatría. Con un promedio de 10 nuevas admisiones al día, el personal médico en el centro de alimentación terapéutica intensiva ya ha tratado a 349 niños menores de 5 años con desnutrición aguda severa, con un número máximo de pacientes de 111 a la vez.

During the rise of Italian fascism, Giorgio was attending the university of Rome, studying to become a doctor and return back to Somalia. When he witnessed the injustices being committed by the Nazis in northern Italy, he decided to join the partisan resistance and fight against the axis powers.

During an operation one day to dislodged Nazi troops from the Alpine town of Stramentizzo, many partisans, including Giorgio lost their lives. After the end of the war in 1953, Marincola’s heroism and ultimate sacrifice was recognized as he was posthumously awarded the nation’s highest military honor, the Gold Medal for Valor (Medaglia d’Oro al Valor Militare) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once the war ended, Giorgio's sister, Isabella was able to leave the war ravaged country and return back to her mother in southern Somalia. After a few years, she became an actress, starring in many prominent Italian films.

She lived a long and fruitful life, dying at the old age of 85 in Bologna, Italy with her family by her side. (March 30, 2010)

After four years of research, in 1971, she presented a doctoral dissertation to examiners at the University of London. The result of which was her book, The Somali Sultanate.

|| Western Somalia Liberation Front (WSLF) || The WSLF was a separatist rebel group fighting in the occupied Somali territory of Ethiopia. Their aim was to free the oppressed Somali people and be reunited with their Somali comrades.

The WSLF was founded by Yusuf Dheere Mohamed Sugaal who was educated and trained in Hargeisa and later Syria. Upon his return from Syria, Yusuf Dheere created the Western Somali Youth Organization. He later met Somali president, Siad Barre in 1973 and convinced the President to do something about the Ogaden region. Siad Barre gave Yusuf Dheere 2 years to give diplomacy a chance and to prepare the Somali National Army. In the meanwhile, Yusuf Dheere was told to recruit 1500 volunteers and was permitted rations for only 1500 people. In the space of a month, he recruited over 3000 soldiers.

Two years later, Yusuf Dheere was given the go ahead he wanted and was told to take control of at least 60% of the Ogaden region before the Somali army would involve itself in the fighting. The WSLF found its opportunity when the Derg overthrew Haile Selassie in 1974. Two years later, the WSLF had control of most of the Ogaden, the first time since the Second World War. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although the Ethiopian army outnumbered the Somalis by at least 3 to 1, the Somali army had much more air-superiority than the Ethiopians and was much better equipped. The WSLF was forced later to retreat to camps in Somalia after the intense Soviet/Cuban support. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀By 1989 the WSLF had ceased to be an effective guerrilla organization within Ethiopia. Yusuf Dheere's exile in 1989 led to the formation of a WSLF splinter group, the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) who slipped back into the Ogaden in 1989, where they still operate to this day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, we are shocked and deeply angered to learn that ONLF leader Abdikarin Sheikh Muse has been illegally handed over to Ethiopia by Somali officials. This was in violation of the principle of non-refoulment laid out in the 1954 UN convention. At this time, we demand answers by the Farmaajo Administration as to why and how this occurred.

|| Soomaaliyaa Hanoolaato || Fellow Somalis, now is the time to rise up. We cannot and we will not accept this anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This young patriot cries as he tells everyone he's joining the military. Please do what you can for your country at this critical moment. Somalia is bleeding right now. It needs all the help it can get. Let us unite as one people!

What a great feeling to stand in a such beautiful & historical place This vintage lighthouse in Eyl was one of the first lighthouses that was built in Somalia

|| Corpo Zaptie || The Italian/African Police were locally raised military units designed to maintain control over the colony by patrolling the rural and coastal regions of Italian Somaliland (1925)

It is well known that the most effective way to control the masses is to practice the "Divide and Rule" tactic. The British and the Italians both knew that the only way they could effectively govern over Somalis was if they broke our sense of unity. They did this by politicizing the clan structure and thus creating a sense of animosity between Somalis on the basis of kinship that continues to plagues us to this day.

This is not a new concept. The colonizers used this tactic to keep the Somalis weak, Siad Barre used it to retain power and the Ethiopians are using it today to ensure a united Somalia never exists. Everywhere we look, there are outside transgressors attempting to influence the Somali people. Our only salvation is our unity.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Somalis are incredibly powerful people. Our biggest enemy will always be ourselves. The only ones who can truly destroy the Somalis are fellow Somalis. So let's work together walaalayaal! Let us ditch this backwards mentality of tribalism. Let us love each other oncemore not on the basis of kinship, but on the basis of "Somalinimo". We have more that unites us than could ever divide us!

|| The Partitition of Western Somalia || Today marks 63 years since the Somali Galbeed was partitioned to Ethiopia by the British Government, going against the will of millions of Somalis and forcing them under foreign occupation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Somali Galbeed will forever be a point of contention for Somalis. We can never rest knowing millions of our people are suffering under Ethiopian occupation. This land will forever be considered Somali territory and God willing, in due time, that land will be returned to its rightful owners.
