The Somali National Olympic Committee has just distributed kit to children displaced by drought.

Working with the Qatar charity and KitAid, the Committee organized a programme at the Qatar village IDP camp near stadium Mogadishu. Over the weekend hundreds of young boys received football kit and took part in football matches organized by the Somali NOC and Qatar charity.

Madino Nur Madey, a mother of five children who travelled more than two hundred kilometers to reach Mogadishu in search of something to eat said that she is happy. She forgot all hardships she experienced after she witnessed her two sons performing well during a football match for children at the Qatar Village camp.

“I have never dreamt like this experience. My two sons have played well and one of them was awarded with a beautiful medal for being the best player in the competition. This will be something to talk a lot in the future," the cheerful mother told a gathering.
