    To solve the country’s flood disaster, Somalia has received a much-needed supply of 25,000 tons of supplies from Russia. The aid shipment was handed over to the Somali Disaster Management Agency (SoDMA) in a ceremony attended by various officials, including the Minister of Internal Affairs, Ahmed Fiqi, the Minister of Ports, Abdullahi Abdullahi Ahmed Jama Ilkajir, the Minister of State for Trade, Osman Daallo, and other officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and SoDMA. Amb. Mikhail Golovanov, Russian Ambassador to Somalia and Djibouti, handed off the package.

    The shipment is planned to deliver much-needed support to flood-affected regions as the first installment of pledged aid to Africa. The severe floods have resulted in significant displacement and destruction.

    The Somali administration has welcomed Russian assistance and expressed gratitude for the country’s assistance.

    In addition to the supply cargo, Russia has promised to give Somalia with extra humanitarian assistance.

    The Russian aid shipment is a welcome boost for Somalia, which is still recovering from the floods. The aid will aid in the relief of individuals affected by the calamity.
