General information on Somalia

SOS Children’s Villages stayed in the country to help the Somali people when the majority of international relief organisations left. To this day, Somalia remains one of the most unstable and dangerous countries in the world. The security situation makes the work of our organisation extremely challenging.

The country has been without an effective government since 1991 and international efforts aimed at building a stable Somali administration have been unsuccessful.

What used to be one of Africa’s most prosperous and thriving commercial centres has turned into the world’s poorest and arguably most violent country.
