War displaced families in Somalia’s Lower Shabelle region face lack of shelter amid life hardships, local NGOs said. Maryam Hassan, a member of Lower Shabelle Women Association told Radio Dalsan that hundreds of families who were displaced by the recent clan-based conflict in the region still face hard life amongst lack of shelter.
“People who fled from the ciolence are scattered in different locations in the region.” Maryan told Radio Dalsan in an interview.
She said that among those affected are women and children whose their beloved ones lost in the clan-based violence that has recently sparked across many districts of the Lower Shabelle rgion.
“They need proper shelter, they need to be relocated.” she added.
“If proper reconciliation is not found as well as the armed militias are not disarmed it won’t be any relocation to these families who already suffered a hostile situation in their homes.” Mrs Hassan said. Dalsanradio.com
