"Close to 4,000 detainees in Somalia will be enjoying goat meat and dates for iftar as they observe the fast this Ramadan. Almost 1,300 goats and over four and a half tonnes of dates were among items distributed to 12 places of detention across Somalia by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
“We are distributing the foodstuffs to detainees, so they feel part of the joy of Ramadan like people outside do during the fast.” said Mohamed Liban, who is ICRC’s Protection Officer in Baidoa.
“Our work is to ensure detainees are treated humanely. Their rights and dignity maintained.”
"Other items distributed were 4,600kg of tea leaves, 4,600kg of powdered milk, 9,500kg of sugar, 4,600kg of spices and 4,600 litres of cooking oil. Below are images of the distribution in one of the detention facilities, Baidoa’s Central Prisons, located in Bay region."
