For the second year running, SOYVDA aspired to organize the Eid Project which aims to put smiles on the faces of hundreds kids. Our interest was to provide clothing and Eid snacks for approximately more than 500 children in Mogadishu. This was the second such endeavour that aimed to put a smile on the young and the future stakeholders of Somalia through providing new clothing for children between the ages of 2-12 years.
These ages were chosen since in most poor families children at these ages suffer neglect due to an already over burdened family characteristic of poor households. It is also important to note that children between these ages are in the formative years of learning and perception. Consequently, they are bound to suffer psychologically due to this neglect.
The Eid program was one day event that targeted more than 500 children drawn from different areas who were benefited from new clothing in the spirit of Eid with other fortunate children.
SOYVDA donates clothes to the underprivileged children bringing smiles and spreading love. The numbers are increasing year by year, but we still make it a point to distribute as many as we canamong the needy children.
