I am living in Hargeisa, Somliland. I have been working for  Save the Children International in Somali-land as a child protection coordinator. I am extremely happy  working for Save the Children International for protecting children from all forms of violations and abuses. Before I joined to Save the Children in November 23, 2002, used to work Hargeisa Orphanage Center.</p> <p><b>A shocking  story about my Mother’s Death</b></p> <p>My mother died at my age of 5 years old. The day that my mother died was a very sad moment. My mother became sick after she gave   birth to my third sister. At that time I used to keep lambs near home and I used to come back home every afternoon for food/milk.   When I came in the house I used to say to my mother how you are mama. A one day in the afternoon I returned to Home.   When I entered into the house  (Aqal Somali) my mother was lying where I left her in the morning and she was looking like smiling as her mouth was open. I felt so happy  because I thought she has  recovered well. With happiness I said mama give me food. Unfortunately, she did not reply. I touched her but she did not move her body.  I  amazed what happened with my loved mother. After a moment, I heard my aunt (sister) of my mother was screaming /mourning outside. Then I realized that my mother died. I never saw   a dead person before  sad moment.</p> <p>A Few days after the death of my mother I faced a very harsh life in   various  problems and  violations including separation from my family (father, sisters and brother), lack of food, lack of care, fears and insecurities, loneliness, discrimination and prejudice. In the  first year,  I  stayed my camel herd cousins in the jungle to get enough milk as my father had not an alternative way to get  enough food/milk otherwise in Somali life style its very rare that parents send their young children (boys) with camel herds during camel herds.   Because camel herd life is very difficult situations where a young child can’t survive for various reasons including existence of different forms of abuses and violations against children including corporal punishment, hard work fear, lack of food except camel milk, water for draining and washing, separation of family and ongoing fudging over camel looting among camel herds in groups based on clans.</p> <p>A few years after being a camel boy, my step uncle (brother of my foster mother) took me to help him for keeping his sheep. I have been sheep herds for a few years which was really much worse than during my time in camel herds. After years, I escaped and managed myself and came in Hargeisa to   my uncle who was a police officer. My uncle took me to Children’s Home for vulnerable children where I lived until I completed my secondary   education in 1985. Living in institutional care is another challenge which affects children in many ways either physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Many violations against children happen in institutional care center. Either child abuse each other or staff abuse children or there are no adequate basic needs in the institutions.</p> <p>I am happy now to work with save the children as child protection coordinator to promote protection rights of vulnerable children. I found Save the Children very important organizations to work with to save and protect children from violations and abuses which experienced through my childhood. Save the Children makes a significant change in the lives of vulnerable children across the world.</p> <div id="__tbSetup"></div> Tragic Incidence of two young brothers tag:youngpartnersindevelopment.org,2012-10-15:2928733:BlogPost:38881 2012-10-15T20:00:00.000Z ismail mohamed abdi /profile/ismailmohamedabdi <p>I would like to share with you about a tragic incidence of two young brothers(3 and 5 yrs old) who dead in burnt house in my town (Hargeisa) in Somali-land on 14/10/2012 ,at 2: 00 PM. the media and eye witness reported that the mother these innocent children was away when the house(hat) burnt on 14/10/2012, in Internally displaced village for minority community in Hargeisa, Somali-land.</p> <p>I think it’s extremely important that international organizations, networks , individuals who work…</p> <p>I would like to share with you about a tragic incidence of two young brothers(3 and 5 yrs old) who dead in burnt house in my town (Hargeisa) in Somali-land on 14/10/2012 ,at 2: 00 PM. the media and eye witness reported that the mother these innocent children was away when the house(hat) burnt on 14/10/2012, in Internally displaced village for minority community in Hargeisa, Somali-land.</p> <p>I think it’s extremely important that international organizations, networks , individuals who work for child protection should take action and publish this case through international media. In my country , there is no child protection policy and government is not very aware about violations against children.</p> <p>It needs to pressure the government of Somali-land to take an urgent action to prevent that similar tragic incidence to happen again and again to innocent children. At least government should make national funeral for these two innocent children so that the entire nation should aware about it.This needs international pressure and joint action of different child protection organization and networks as well as individual who have love and compassionate for children.</p> <p>Don’t hesitate to contact me for further information related to this tragic incidence See the link below about photos of dead bodies of innocent children</p> <p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/x/t/0091009/photos/33299935@N05/8086211924/">http://www.flickr.com/x/t/0091009/photos/33299935@N05/8086211924/</a></p> Save The Children Launches Project tag:youngpartnersindevelopment.org,2012-09-06:2928733:BlogPost:37857 2012-09-06T21:59:36.000Z ismail mohamed abdi /profile/ismailmohamedabdi <p>To Help Street Kids Hargeysa, Somaliland, June 2, 2012 (SL Times) – Save the Children launched a new program to help homeless children.
