U.S. pledges $69 million to Somalia

dollars-moneyWASHINGTON – The united States is giving the nation of Somalia $69 million to bolster the war-ravaged nation.

According to the U.S. State Department, a delegation of U.S. government officials underlined American support for the priorities of Somalia’s New Deal Compact and pledged $69 million to promote and strengthen already existing programs in community stabilization, economic growth, education, and enhancing democracy, governance, and rule of law.

“Through this New Deal platform, America’s longstanding commitment to Somalia and the Somali people will continue to deepen,” said a State Department spokesperson. “We are committed to working with the Somali people and the Federal Government of Somalia to improve the lives of everyday Somalis, and enhancing our diplomatic and development relationships.”

The spokeswoman said that progress is being made in Somalia and that the “international community” stands with them.

“The United States recognizes the significant progress made in Somalia over the past year. This progress would not have taken place were it not for the dedication and commitment of the many members of the Somali community who make a daily decision to focus on a future built on hope and peace, rather than on conflict and despair. We, and the international community, stand with them.”
