General information on Somalia


SOS Children’s Villages stayed in the country to help the Somali people when the majority of international relief organisations left. To this day, Somalia remains one of the most unstable and dangerous countries in the world. The security situation makes the work of our organisation extremely challenging. At present there are one SOS Children's Village, one SOS Youth Facility, one SOS Kindergarten, one SOS Hermann Gmeiner School, one SOS Vocational Training Centre, one SOS Medical Centre and one SOS Emergency Programme in Somalia.

The country has been without an effective government since 1991 and international efforts aimed at building a stable Somali administration have been unsuccessful.
