Our colleague Zahir's visit there gives us the impetus to work harder to help these blind kids who are mostly homeless orphans . We are looking into building a school for them inshaa Allah as the current landlord wants them to move out.
I visited Al Basiir School in Mogadishu today.
I spent time with blind children who come to learn and some who also live here. (Most are orphans). I sat with them and ate with them. I observed them. Such resiliance, patience and strong characters. This school has been operating for 10 years and struggles day to day providing education/food and a place to sleep for many orphans with lack of funding.Allah swt bless everyone involved in this.
