GALKACYO, SOMALIA, October 11, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently distributed school supplies and uniforms to 388 pupils in four primary schools in Somalia.
Students in four primary schools in the Galkacyo district of the Mudug region received uniforms, backpacks, stationary and other supplies. The schools are located in central Somalia including Alsha’ab and Harhar orphanage schools in Galkacyo town, Bandiradley town primary school and the Saddeh-Higlo village primary school.
According to Elizabeth Sohail, program manager at Baitulmaal, some items were scarce in the region and had to be transported by air from Mogadishu to Galkacyo. Uniforms also had to be specially tailored for the students.
“Many of the students are orphans or from low-income households,” Sohail said. “These supplies enable them to overcome obstacles in pursuit of their education.”
Baitulmaal digs wells, distributes food, invests in healthcare and provides educational support to people in Somalia. If you would like to learn more or contribute to these programs at Baitulmaal, please visit their website at Baitulmaal.org.
