Bunker Life as an IDP; Continued Victim's of Conflict


February 9, 2012- Despite the recent famine and need to seek refuge in the Capital City, many of the country’s most vulnerable continue to find themselves victims of conflict. For those seeking refuge in the large IDP settlements located in and around K7, Mogadishu's new frontline, surviving life in the cross fire has forced the development of "bunker" living.

We have much fear; at night we hear too much music (a term used by locals to describe the constant barrage of gunfire). Many of us dig holes in our shelters to sleep so the bullets will not find us. I feel scared for my children here but I cannot go home. I thank Allah for the help in the camp, we are lucky, but life is very hard. One day I hope to go home but for now I fear the bullets will follow.” WASH program beneficiary.

To assist those displaced by famine and conflict HIJRA works to deliver emergency programs in WASH, Livelihoods and Health to over 362,000 in South Central Somalia.
