ABOUT THE BOOK:
The civil war in Somalia has raged for over twenty years causing anarchy with hundred of thousands dying from violance, disease and famine. At least forty five percent of the population has been displaced, either internally or forced to flee to neighbouring countries, the Middle East and the West.
This book aims to inform and collate the various narratives of those displaced population fleeing from the war. You will get to read storied of people who went to trek across continents, the Middle East, Eastern and Western Europe, Scandinavia, and how some now find themselves here in the UK.
