Pray for Somalia - facebook page

For Somalia, it is vital that the debt relief process is accelerated to unlock new financial resources to be channeled for reconstruction and development and to encourage greater investments in the country. It is also crucial that Somalia receives full debt cancellation from its external creditors to avoid servicing external debts after obtaining debt relief through the HIPC Initiative. Servicing of debts will divert scarce resources away from development. This will require Somalia’s external creditors to accelerate the debt relief process and grant the country full debt cancellation. This will consolidate the restoration of peace and political stability and spur development, thereby reducing the risk of the country reverting back into conflict. Pray that this war ridden country will have peace. Pray that the poverty stricken people will receive care and comfort (The Bible, Isaiah 61:7).
