Orphanage Campaign

  • As a direct result of prolonged drought, a high volume of children are flocking to Hargeysa from rural areas with the aim of finding a way to earn income. The Mo Farah Foundation is working to eradicate long term poverty and hunger whilst ensuring environmental stability.


    In 2013 building will begin on the new Mo Farah Orphanage & Sports Academy in Hargeysa which will house up to 150 children aged between 6-18 years old: the Foundation’s most ambitious project to date.


    This will cover a housing block, a medical clinic, as well as a running track and indoor sports hall, which will offer children a chance to channel their energies towards a better life.


    We need your help with donations to make the children of Somalia feel safe, improve conditions and give them hope!
