I’m sorry to share with you two young children -brother and sister (13 years old girl and 10 yrs old boy) from Internally Displaced (IDP) State House camp in Hargeisa died in a water dam in Jigjiga yar Village in Hargeisa on 8 May 2012, at 4:30 PM.  The young girl was washing clothes at the dam.  The young brother brought lunch for his sister. Unfortunately, the young boy   fallen into the dam. For her kindness, the young sister tried to protect him. Unluckily, both of them died.  Each year during the rainy season many young children die in the dams either in this dam or others in Hargeisa and other towns of Somaliland. It’s the time that Somaliland as a whole to wake up and take collective and an urgent measures to protect the innocent children from preventable hazards and negligence.
