Somalia’s recovery and stability are extraordinarily fragile.
Many Somali families continue to rely on remittances to meet
their most basic needs. With roughly a quarter-billion dollars of
direct, community-level support at stake, all parties involved—
Somali authorities, the uS government, banks, and MTOs—must
ensure that members of the Somali diaspora in the united
States can send their money to Somalia as long as they are
willing and able to do so.
