AWDAL traditional leaders call on residents to support relief efforts


By M.A. Egge
The top traditional leaders of Awdal and Selel regions yesterday
appealed to the residents of their areas to support both morally and
materially the ongoing efforts of relief aid to the affected people by
the drought sweeping across the country.
The leaders called on the area entrepreneurs, the youth and all
capable individuals to eke in whatever they could to the cause such
that the duress being undergone by the pastoralists may be alleviated.
“It is incumbent upon all and sundry from our regions to help
alleviate the drought problems affecting the people of the eastern
regions”, said Sultan Ibrahim Jama Samatar.
His colleague Sultan Abdirahman Jama Dawal echoed the same words and
added that people vulnerable to the same fate should always be at hand
to help each other at all times.
