Somali women bear brunt of displacement

Internally displaced Somali women collect UNHCR aid supplies at the Maajo settlement in Mogadishu this week.

Somali women are bearing the brunt of suffering from displacement as they are the ones who flock into spontaneous settlements while the men remain in their areas of origin.

According to the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) there are 400,000 displaced people in and around the capital Mogadishu.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres was recently in the country and travelled to the towns of Dollo on the border with Ethiopia, and Mogadishu.
