Description : For more than 4,000 people in the Somali capital Mogadishu, 2018 brought another challenge to an environment already marred by conflict and drought: eviction. Longstanding camps for internally displaced families were demolished, leaving some of the city’s most vulnerable residents homeless.
Many resettled in Kalkal centre, a camp that is now home to roughly 800 people on the outskirts of Mogadishu. To help vulnerable families restart their lives, the ICRC provided cash grants of $85 per household for three months. Among them were women entrepreneurs—most of them widows and single mothers—who, despite the myriad of challenges they faced, are carving out a living for themselves and their children.
