The Challenges of War: A Peace Direct comic book

This comic tells the stories of Ayaan and Abdi, ordinary Somalis whose lives have been affected by the war. They have shown remarkable resilience, bravery and determination in their efforts to build a safe and secure life for themselves and their families.

Ayaan was just six years old when the Somali Civil War started. With limited opportunities to escape the poverty and conflict still surrounding her as an adult, our partner, the Social life and Agricultural Development Organisation (SADO), transformed her life for the better.

Abdi’s father was killed when he was a child, forcing his family to flee their home city. After years of poverty and no opportunities as a result of the war, his future prospects changed as a result of the support of Peace Direct partner, SADO.

Read the comics today, as told by Ayaan and Abdi:
