The IOM and UNHCR are beginning a radio campaign which will be aired on BBC Somali Service until January 2010. The campaign will warn Somalis of the dangers of traveling through Somalia towards the Gulf of Aden and across the Gulf of Aden.
“The campaign in Somali … will target both migrants as well as host communities in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and Yemen.”
“Funded by IOM and its partners, the campaign will comprise various components, including migrant testimonies, discussions and drama. The radio campaign is part of a broader Somali lifeline programme funded by various UN agencies including UNICEF, UNFPA and the UN’s Office at Nairobi (UNON).”
