Basic services in Somalia are severely lacking because of political instability, precarious security conditions, and climate
shocks; the situation also makes it difficult for international organizations to deliver aid.
Since the late 1990s, we have been working with the Norwegian Red Cross (NorCross) to help physical rehabilitation
centres run by the Somali Red Crescent Society (SRCS) deal with, among others, a lack of supplies and qualified staff, and limited government assistance. We are currently supporting SRCS centres in Galkayo, Hargeisa and Mogadishu; NorCross is the main source of funding, while we focus on providing technical expertise and logistical assistance.
Somalia has not yet signed the UNCRPD.
