What about the mentally ill people?

Africa: Mental Illness as a Silent Predator in the Developing World.

This time is all about the mentally ill people. People hardly talk about them. There are so many big organizations and micro organization which only focus on helping the poor and homeless. That is a good thing to do. However, it is observed, the number of mentally ill people in increasing drastically. Especially in Somali. The war led to so many mentally ill people in Somali and they are simply neglected by the community. They are considered as outcasts but they are people like us all. I therefore have a passion for the mentally ill and have decided to launch this project to help them.


In this Horn of Africa nation that has been mired in anarchy and war for two decades, nearly all families have been touched by tragedy. Somalia is the one of the worst place on earth to have a mental illness. A 20 year civil-war has increased mental illness numbers and simultaneously destroyed any health care infrastructure. The evidence of this can be found almost everywhere, as most of Somalia's mentally ill are either simply chained the beds or left to roam the streets, leaving with them permanent trauma and physical injuries.
