Never Give Up

Posted January 4, 2021 from Somalia

 

I was born in Mogadishu in 1986. I studied in Mogadishu and spent most of my time studying. When I graduated from university, my parents married me for security reasons.

There were not Educated  girls at that time. There was a lot of fighting. At that time, I had a son and three daughters.

It was 03-22-2011 a time my base was Bay region baydhaba District South west somalia i am doing humanitarian Aid working .

The forces took place during that time Announced to move all organizations South west state We were called to the office by a group of men who told us to stand up under the sun the sun was very hot at that time after 3 hours.

As I remember, my colleague Isha Aden aged 52 years was office cleaner she become unconscious urinated and had a bowel movement while standing still. They completely took over the office and took everything They completely took over the office and took everything

they told us to get out of there, I will never forget that situation while it was before 13 years.

My husband was died in explosion. When some one phoned me and  told where he was drinking coffee, there was an explosion I quickly went to the place where everything was over and zero I started to care the little ones and try my best so that life without a loved one will continue without a loved one.

that is my story,

Greeting Sisters.

Dear Susu,
Welcome to World Pulse. I cannot imagine the terror of that moment under the sun for three hours. I am sorry that the conflict robbed you of the freedom of when to marry or even whether to marry in the first place, and eventually your husband as well. I am so sorry for all your losses, and I am encouraged that through hope and resilience, you continue to care for your children, build your life and the lives of other women. Good on you. Stay strong.
