Somalia: Number of HRDs at risk Continue to Increase.

As elections approach in Somalia, alshabab increased its deadly attacks against the government and CSOs e.g. HRDs in Somalia in order to undermine the progress of state building and democracy in Somalia.

Consequently number of HRDs at risk increased given the dire security situation in Somalia, where HRDs are easy targets for both alshabab and warlords running federal member states of the federal of government of Somalia.

We can notably mention some few HRDs at risk with their names abbreviated:

  1. A. M. and she is program manager at Women human rights action CENTER WHRAC.
  2. M. A. and she is the chairwoman at WHRAC.
  3. Sh. A. And she is human rights Researcher at Horn Afrik news Agency for human rights
  4. I. A. and he is the advocacy & partnerships manager at the Horn Afrik news Agency for human rights HANAHR.NET
  5. N.A.M, is Women HRD and she is the Advocacy and program manager at South West Human Rights Defenders Network (SWHRDN) based in South West State of Somalia Bay ,Bakool and Lower Shabele Region . She is a feminist advocate since 2015 in Somalia. SWHRDN.
