President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Nasr Al-Hariri, sent a letter to Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) and the Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), regarding the general conditions of Syrian refugees in Somalia and the urgent need to provide them with humanitarian and relief aid.
Al-Hariri expressed his appreciation for the efforts made by AFAD and QRCS as well as for their role in helping the Syrian people and alleviating their suffering.
Al-Hariri made it clear that the SOC received reports about the arrival of Syrian refugees to the city of Hargeisa in Somalia coming from Sudan and Ethiopia, adding that the SOC’s Office of Refugee Affairs is communicating with the refugees and compiling a list of their names.
He pointed out that these refugees are asking for support, especially housing and shelter, as well as urgent humanitarian and medical aid. They also need assistance in facilitating their movement to areas within Somalia, especially to the capital, Mogadishu, in order to reunite with their families and to be officially registered refugees in Somalia.
