Foreign radio hams should be reminded to bring a copy of their home amateur radio license and a passport size photo. A Ham license is then issued on behalf of the Department of Telecommunications, Somalia.

The villagers can meet the person whose voice they have heard from your radio. The village can have a room and food for visitors as well as boat and car trips and walks around the nearby villages. A life long friendship has now started to the benefit of the village, the visitor and Somalia.

The foreign visitors who come to meet their Somalia ham radio friends will create more interest in Somalia when they return home and tell everyone about their great holiday in Somalia.

 
 
 
 
AMATEUR RADIO BENEFITS SOMALIA.
 
9. Midkamid ah faa’idooyinka tiradabadan ee uu leeyahay raadiyaha hiwaayadda ah ayaa ah xiisaha iyo saaxiibtinimada uu ka dhex abuurayo dadka Soomaaliyeed iyo kuwa dalalka kale ku nool.
 
One of the benefits of a large number of radio amateurs in Somalia is the interest it will generate and the friendships that will form between Somalia and the peoples in every country of the world.
 
 
 
10. Waxaa hadda laga shaqeynayaa waa awood isgaarsiineed oo aan qiimo saas ah ugu fadhin dawladda halkaasoo dadka xiiseeya hiwaayadaha adeegsiga raadiyaha si ay u dhisaan awood ay kula xiriiraan gabi ahaanba dalalka ku yaala aduun weynaha. Sida badan marka dadka Soomaaliya ku nool badankood aysan haysanin ama aysan iibsankarin qalabka war lalis qabtaha ah.
 
What is being developed is a communications capability at no cost to the Government where individuals interested in the hobby of radio communications will build up a capability to connect the entire country and the world. All at a time when most people in Somalia don’t have and cannot afford transceivers.
 
 
 
11. Hawl galayaasha raadiyaha waxay caawin karan dadka, ururka Bisha cas ee Soomaalida, ama ururka masiibooyinka ka hortaga ee dalka iyo dhammaan ururada gargaarka bani’aadanimo ku taxaluqa, dawlada iyo hay’adaha aan dawliga ahayn ee qeybta ka ah “enternetka aan qiimaha joogin” oo adeegsanaya adeegyada ayqabtaan hawl galiyayaasha raadiyaha Ham xiliyada lagu jiro masiibooyinka.

Ham Radio friendship resulted in the donation of an ambulance to Somalia.
 

In Galkayo, Somalia on the 12 April 2007 a ceremony was held that included thanks to amateur radio (ham radio- Helping All Mankind radio) operators for helping facilitate the donation of an ambulance to the Galkayo Region Hospital, (700km north of Mogadishu), Puntland State, Somalia.

 

Dr Ahmed Abdikader, who is Regional Hospital Director in the Mudug region of Somalia thanked Dr Mohamed Jama Salad for getting a donated ambulance through the friendship he made with Italian amateur radio operators during their radio holidays in Galkayo, Somalia.

 

He said this ambulance was an urgent need and he thanked the people of Italy, the radio amateurs and the NGO called Avis (Italian blood donating organisation).

 

Dr Mohamed Jama Salad, the Neurosurgeon in Galkayo, Somalia thanked the participants at the ceremony who included Sam Voron (VK2BVS, 6O0A), Filip Rogister (ON4TA, 6O0F), Mayor of Galkayo, District Commissioner of the Galkayo Government council, Galkayo Hospital Doctors, Manager of telephone companies and business men.

 

The aim of the meeting was to present the ambulance and its key to the regional hospital director.

 

He said this donation was from Avis who run the Italian blood donation bank.

 

Dr Mohamed Jama Salad thanked the amateur radio operators especially the Italian hams who conducted a DX radio operating holiday expedition in 2005 and 2006 in Galkayo, Somalia.

 

Silvano Borsa (I2YSB, 6O0CW) lead the group of 5 Italian amateur radio operators and another group of 7 Italian hams in 2006 to Galkayo, Somalia.

 

He said that "the Italian amateur radio team opened the relations between Somalia and Avis" (the Italian donors) and he said "I am giving a special thanks to Sam Voron (VK2BVS, 6O0A) who made it easy for ham radio operators to visit Galkayo, Somalia". He said "I want to welcome Filip (ON4TA, 6O0F) who is currently on a 2 week amateur radio holiday in Galkayo, Somalia".

 

He said "The well equipped ambulance that cost Euro 75,000 ($US120,000) will be used to transport people with spinal cord injuries. All we received was made easy by the efforts of the Amateur Radio operators. The Ham radio operators are represented at the ceremony by Sam Voron (VK2BVS, 6O0A) from Australia and Filip Rogister (ON4TA, 6O0F) from Belgium". "We also welcome the SARFEN (Somalia Amateur Radio Friendship and Emergency Network) President Mr. Mohamed Yasin Isak 6o0my".

 

"I am saying to the Ham Radio people to please keep doing what you are doing to help Somalia especially Galkayo".

 

Mr. Mohyadin Abdi Bihi, the Galkayo Mayor said "he is happy to see the hospital receive a well equipped ambulance because the 2 previous ambulances were just small buses. I can say this is a victory (advance) for the people of Somalia. I am thanking the overseas people who made easy our path to receive such a gift. The ambulance will be useful to help road accident victims. I am saying please continue these efforts to bring help from overseas countries to Somalia".

 

"Our situation in Somalia is very poor. We don’t see many improvements like we see today that helps the life of the Somali people".

 

Mr. Abdirushid Ali Hashi, Govenor of Mudug region in Somalia said "as he looked at Sam (VK2BVS, 6O0A) and Filip (ON4TA, 6O0F) he noted that Sam had visited Somalia 13 times between 1993 to 2007 and he was now considered to be a member of the Galkayo, Somalia community. He hoped that Filip (ON4TA, 6O0F) who was visiting Africa and Somalia for the first time would continue to come to Galkayo, Somalia like Sam.

 

I am thanking Avis who donated this ambulance".

 

"I am saying to the ham radio people please keep helping the Somali people and help us find a blood donation bank.

 

I am saying especially to the SARFEN (Somalia Amateur Radio Friendship and Emergency Network) President Mr. Mohamed Yasin Isak 6O0MY and his 2 friends Sam (VK2BVS, 6O0A) from Australia and Filip (ON4TA, 6O0F) from Belgium to take our message to the world
