UN Wishes Peaceful and Safe Eid-al-Fitr to all Somalis

Mogadishu – The United Nations family in Somalia extends warm greetings to all Somalis on the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr, to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan and celebration of peace and hope. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact people observing Ramadan in Somalia and across the world, for the second year in a row, restricting in person gatherings of families and loved ones during a time of togetherness.”  said James Swan, the UN Secretary-General Special Representative for Somalia.

“The great effort that Somalis have made to observe the health guidelines imposed by health authorities has helped protect families and communities as well as control the spread of the virus. However, it is too early to let our guard down, therefore I encourage everyone to continue to observe the health protocols and celebrate Eid safely in a spirit of joy, reconciliation, kindness, and solidarity. Ciid Wanaangsan.”
