An organisation run by Somali women in the United States has donated $70,000 to continuing repairs at Abudwak Airport in the Galguduud region, UN-funded Radio Bar-Kulan reported Tuesday (July 10th).

The Somali-American Women's Foundation (SAWF) made the donation after it received several requests from the airport renovation committee, said SAWF Chairwoman Shukri Ahmed Said.

She said SAWF has taken part in recent efforts to save the lives of people affected by drought and famine, adding that the foundation intends to open up offices in Somalia to reach other people in need. She said the foundation is open to requests from deserving parties seeking funds.
