In December 2007, QC established a representative of- ce in Mogadishu to begin its strategic plan for the reconstruction and promotion of eldwork. In January 2010, with the approval of the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, the QC representative of ce became a eld of ce. QC, like other international voluntary humanitarian NGOs in the country, is governed by the laws of the Somali Ministry of Interior and Fed- eral Affairs.

About Somalia

Somalia is located in the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by the Red Sea to the north, Ethiopia to the west and the Indian Ocean to the south-east. It occupies an area of 637 657 sq. km. It has a popula- tion of about 10 million people, who are mostly engaged in graz- ing, trade, shing, agriculture and handicrafts. Since the collapse of the Somali state in the early 1990s, the coun- try has experienced civil war and tribal con icts. These have led to a total failure of services, a lack of development efforts, and unbearable suffering for the most helpless people.
