List of the charities mentioned in this article that are looking after and helping Somali refugees in a Muslim country, Yemen are;

Danish Refugee Council (DRC)

International Organization for Migration (IOM)

Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA)

Saudi Arabia and the rich Gulf Arab countries have every right to say they don't want these refugees, but, were are their Muslim charities to help these Muslims? While the Western countries based 'Islamic relief' collects money from impressionable young Somali Muslims in the West, under the guise of helping the 'Muslim Ummah', aren't these Somali refugees in Yemen included this illusory "Muslim Ummah"? It looks like they are only interested in helping their own, since no Somali is a member of their executive Managing Council.

Which Somali Muslim hates the 'kafir' lands they live in and would kindly like to trade places with these Somali refugees in Yemen and live in a Muslim country? Any takers?

Yemen is a rather poor country, one in five Yemenis are malnourished. I don't even know how they took in refugees in the first place.

Sxb, you are right, Yemen has pulled above it's weight for helping and hosting al these refugees in their country, but where are the Islamic charities? Not long ago, I had this discussion with a Somali friend who told me that he only donates through "Islamic Relief" based in England. When I asked him why? His response was, they help the 'ummah' and are actively involved with Somalis in refugees camps. I don't see them helping Somalis in Yemen. I bet his donations went to the tribal areas, Waziristan in Pakistan.

Notice how this Voodoo character now claims that he has a Somali "friend", while at the same time tries to insinuate that Somalis are both a burden on others and are more likely to help Islamists abroad on some misguided jihad than fellow Somalis in need. I would suggest that he is unaware of the 1.6 billion dollars sent annually as remittances by Somalis to their relatives back home, but chances are that he is already privy to this inconvenient fact.

And this is all in the space of a few short phrases. No normal person thinks anything remotely like this folks.

The discussion at hand is about Somali refugees in Yemen and the absence of Muslim charities.

Btw

I don't only have Somali friends, but I also have Somali cousins by the dozen.

You're absolutely right, a rather sane person you are among the mentally ill that derails our Somalis, after all 1 in 3 suffers from some mental illness may god look after them.

Last Sunday i walked into a Somali restaurant after having some crazy cravings for some bariis and right in front of me i see "help syrian muslims" and although i'm all up for helping everyone, WHAT ABOUT US?? ALMOST 300,000k kids passed away and we're still in need of supporting displaced Somalis.

somalis unfortunately can't smell the smoke forget seeing the fire.
