Helping those suffering the unthinkable – starvation.
Famine has turned Somaliland into one of the worst humanitarian crises in modern history.
As a part of our ‘Year of Giving’ initiatives, 150,000 Salma food packets were distributed among the famine-affected people in Somaliland on 26th August 2017. Asterians played their part in the humanitarian effort by contributing money with the help of Al Hayat Islamic foundation.
