The Understanding of HIV-Aids Face
HIV/AIDS IS NOT A CURSE BUT…
UBAH ELMI, not the real name, is a mother and widow of 30 years old living with HIV-Aids.. She has two beautiful children, a son, named Ahmed and a daughter with the name of Ilhan. She now lives in Lasdacwo- Sahil Somaliland.
Lasdacawo is just a small and remote village in Sahil which lies about 55 km, South West of Berbera. About 300 families live in there who get their livelihood through animal husbandry and agricultural products. Services of all sorts are hardly in here. Though the road to Laska is bumpy and rough it has a better climate. This is where Ubah’s parental ancestors originate from.
Just a couple of years ago, Ubah had a flourishing Kat (Qaad) business in Berbera where she used to sell Kat to Port workers and drivers. While engaging in this activity, she married the second husband, Omar Ali. Omer is a lorry driver who takes ration food to Ethiopia and earns a lot good money.

Over the last 20 years, war of ugliest kind has been fought in Somalia. Somali people, wherever they are, spoiled their true identity. Don’t get offended. This is a choice Somalis made themselves! Today what-so-called Somali Republic is shattered into pieces and exists just in dreams. The ‘Somali’ name has been labeled with all sorts of evils of today’s world- terrorism, piracy, extreme poverty, to mention but a few. The average common man in all across the world- black and white, Muslim and non Muslim, will slap you with the reality that Somalis are senseless, violent and some even more dreadful manifestations. It means Somalis are comfortable with disunity despite the fact that there are many factors that can bind them together. However, in this piece of writing I intend to urge Somalis to put aside their grievances and find a way to live together.
As someone who loves peace and order, but happens to be Somalilander by nationality and Somali by ethnicity, I hope twenty years is a good enough to shed the blood of innocent Somalis anymore in this modern world. Enough is enough. Lawlessness and anarchy must find no room in our lives. And by now the horrible images of skeletal Somali children and exhausted mothers with shriveled breasts should have touched you. My essence is to remind you, Somalis, your troubles so that we give peace a chance and help save souls.
Somalis have been burden to the shoulders of international community. They failed to re-establish themselves and stand by its feet again. Since the demise of the Somali state, more than a million people in Somalia died as a result of war, food crisis and disease- a deep human misfortune. Many children and mothers are still sick of malnutrition and famine. Others are in deep sorry state and displaced within the country. While many more people turned out to be refugees outside Somalia.
