    China has provided $150,000 to the Somali National Disaster Management Agency (SoDMA) to assist newly freed territories from Al-Shabaab militants as well as drought-affected Somalis.

    Chinese Ambassador Fei Shengchao presented the contribution to SoDMA Commissioner Mohamud Maalim Abdulle at the agency’s headquarters in Mogadishu on Sunday.

    The money will be used to give food, water, and other necessities to Somalis suffering by the drought. It will also be utilised to aid SoDMA in providing relief and assistance to individuals in need.

    Aside from the contribution, Ambassador Shengchao and Commissioner Abdulle discussed ways to expand China-Somali cooperation in crisis management and relief distribution.

    The Chinese government’s gift is a big step forward in Somalia and China’s collaboration on disaster management and assistance distribution challenges. It also demonstrates the two nations’ strong bilateral connections.
