frica, Somalia, Mogadishu. 20/10/2015. Loox (traditional Somali Koranic tables of wood) by the wall in a Madrasas located in Onat refugee camp in the district of Abdi Asis.
Over 700 families live in Onat refugee camp in the district of Abdi Asis. Some IDPs have been living in this tent city for more than 20 years. Living conditions are precarious, and most of the displaced have nowhere to go back to, having lost everything during the lengthy conflict. In the Madrasas of Mogadishu, Koran teachers impart the pillars of Islam to the new generations. After years of heretical dictatorship, everything must be reconstructed from the foundations, including religious faith.
