This Week's Voices: Lives at risk in Somalia
January 20, 2012
By The IRC
This is Somalia from International Rescue Committee on Vimeo: The IRC's Peter Biro reports on the crisis in Somalia, a country devastated by conflict and the worst drought in 60 years. As a result of the violence, hundreds of thousands of people are displaced inside Somalia with little access to humanitarian aid.
“Unless humanitarian access improves [in Somalia], thousands of lives will be at risk.”
"Afghanistan is a poor, agrarian, landlocked country. It’s a nation that has seen close to 35 years of conflict. So it’s going to require a long-term effort and commitment on the part of the global community to make a lasting difference here."
"My younger brother Ahmed was killed because he loved Iraq and wanted to work for peace."
