This is such a sad situtation here. There are five Somolians still here at the airport - WAITING. The United Nations has been able to find countries for several. Three (including Aihan) went to Sweden, two are going to Norway and three will remain - waiting and waiting. Those who when back to Somolia - some are dead - they were forced into the fighting and did not survive. They have word that a couple of others are still living.
The man from India - Habashaw - is noW in his 10th year here - and we cannot call this living here - it is existing here. He has no hope. He sometimes gets food, sometimes does not. The United Nations is working on his situation too..but no country has yet accepted him. He is hoping for Canada or the United States. He waits. They told him he just needed to wait. 10 years he has waited. How can this happen?
IF YOU ARE TRAVELING THROUGH MOSCOW - THEY ARE UPSTAIRS IN TERMINAL F. Habashaw is outside the First Class Lounge and the Somolians are on the other end (a different stair way) close to the upstairs restaurant. Any help you can give would be appreciated. A group from Sweden gave each of the Somolians a computer - giving them something to do - at least they have a chance to watch videos people leave them etc. Imagine - years of nothing! Please help.
We have several teams coming through - please bring a little cash, a little food, some socks, maybe a few personal items, like toothpaste, soap, videos, hygiene products, be prepared to help them - it will be so worth this for you AND FOR THEM.
This is a time to be truly RADICAL AND SERVE.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.
