  1. notice how whenever something decent is reported the haters dont post! lol haters keep on hating Somaliland keeps getting better.

  2. It is pity that whoever posted this makes it a notable thing to do for these resilient people. Two little of the resources offered by aid donors reach these areas. Iam certain that whatever is given are the leftovers not needed by the central community. It also pity to see the ignorance of whoever posted this insulting offer doesn't know that lughaya is in the awdal region and not Selel, though I for one don't recognize Selel as a region but will remain within Awdal.
