Barkhad Abdi: Keep the Lifelines Open for Family-to-Family Support in Somalia By Barkhad Abdi

As almost any Somali living in the U.S. will tell you, sending money to relatives and friends back home is just something that we do. I’ve grown up seeing my grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles do it for years -- it’s a fact of life. It’s no surprise that every year, Somali migrants

send approximately $1.3 billion to Somalia -- a sum far larger than all the official development assistance and direct foreign investment that Somalia receives. When my family left Somalia to go to Yemen, I remember that we used to receive money each month from relatives in

the United States. My parents used this money to cover basic household expenses, and for a period, we had no other source of income. I was too young at that time to understand how important this money was, but I can certainly appreciate that now.

At that time, my family’s situation was not exceptional. Even today, around 41 percent of Somali households receive remittances from overseas on a regular basis. This money is used to buy food, water, and clothes, take care of the sick and send children to school.

This is money that millions of people rely on to make ends meet, and many would go hungry without it. Traditionally, the flow of money to Somalia was facilitated by what Somalis refer to as ‘Hawalas,’ or xawilaad in Somali. see page 3
