After months-long training, Iran’s Imam Khomeini Relief Foundation and the Iranian embassy in Somalia held the graduation ceremony of more than fifty women and girls in Mogadishu on Wednesday.

Through its training centers in Mogadishu, Iran has assisted Somali women by offering them training in the fields of tailoring and use of computers.

The women and girls were issued with sewing machines and certificates upon completion of their respective courses in a colorful event that was held in capital city’s Hamar Weyne district.

The beneficiaries thanked the Islamic Republic for its humanitarian role in Somalia. Iran has played a critical role in Somalia since the East African nation suffered its worst drought in six decades.

For years the Iranian charity organization has provided support to poor families in many Muslim countries. A senior official from the Iranian embassy in Somalia said that the charity foundation operates according to the principles of Imam Khomeini who believed in assisting the poor and the needy across the globe.

Since the end of the famine period two years ago, the Islamic Republic of Iran has remained in Somalia and initiated many projects all across Mogadishu and for that the government and the people of Somalia have hailed Iran’s humanitarian aid.
