    I saw this on Twitter and was left utterly disgusted.

    This country has a street kid problem that no one seems to want to acknowledge. This thread isn't meant to target any region or for fkd but to just share available information on this problem. I will start with the most comprehensive account by Vice in 2014.

    These kids are from Mogadishu and lost their parents to suicide bombings. They sniff glue and sleep on the streets as well:



    This boy has just started sniffing glue four days prior. He says that he typically smokes cigarettes and shiisha and eats khat:


    The FGS says that there are 5,000 street boys in Mogadishu and they can't afford to do anything for them:

    One thing that you'll notice in all of these videos and pictures is that there isn't a single girl, just boys. I'm certain that they've been taken into human trafficking and are being prostituted out by depraved degenerates.

    This article from 2017 dispels two common myths:
    1. These children are not all Oromo.
    2. These children are not all orphans.
    Homeless children sniff glue to take 'away the pain' of surviving Somalia's streets

    Let us give a credit to the Kacaan era. Those boys and girls were called the ubaah or Kacaan children. Kacaan era was giving care to those children s.

    This isn't true.

    The kids used to exist during Siad Barre's time.

    Here is one, an extremely malnourished street child in Mogadishu taken in 1985.

    A combination of bad governance, lack of family planning and an individualistic society cause things like this to happen.

    I noticed in the other videos that these boys like to dance and perform for the camera in hopes of getting a small donation. It seems that they are used to being used by adults for entertainment.

    That’s just heartbreaking, we collect so much money in Minnesota every year for children, I wonder where it’s going to, I thought we had orphanages. Nothing gets to me more than children and old Somali women in need of help.

    You have to go in person and do the work. There is too much corruption and your money will never reach those children

    @Tukraq

    Off course mate, there are no orphaned kids, no kids with extremely poor parents (mostly single mothers), they’re children from good homes who are misbehaving. Furthermore, those who did suugo research about Somalia and claimed that our blessed country to be one of the worst places to be a child are lying. Finally, we never had orphaned children brainwashed and indoctrinated by Alshabaab terrorists and nor had we ever seen orphaned child soldiers fighting for the militias because their clans won’t allow them. It’s all foreign propaganda aimed to humiliate Somalis and Somalia. I and many others missed this memo. Ok. We got it now.
