A high-level delegation comprising of business religious leaders led by famous scholar Sheikh Mohamed Umal and Eastleigh Business District Association Chairman Ibrahim Hussein arrived in Mogadishu today to deliver contributions from well-wishers in Kenya towards assistance for those affected by the October 14 deadly blast in Mogadishu’s busy Zobe area.
Funds collected under the Gurmadqaran252 replicating a similar effort in Somalia raised up to 25,000USD.
Officials of the Benadir regional administration received the delegation at the Aden Adde International Airport.
More than 350 people were killed and hundreds of others injured in what has become Mogadishu’s bloodiest terror attack after a truck bomb exploded at the busy Zobe junction on October 14, 2017.
The attack attracted widespread public condemnation and response with Somalis locally and abroad initiating efforts to help the victims and their families through blood donations, financial and material support among other initiatives.
