Created in 1985 and with a current population of 1850 HH, Lafaweyne village is situated 75 km from Las'ano. Livestock rearing and collection and sale of firewood is the main economic activity of the village. The community living in this location has faced a couple of challenges including lack of school, hospital, severe droughts resulting in a shortage of water for both human and livestock. While all the whole Sool Region share these burdens, Lafaweyn has been severely hit by droughts affecting thousands of nomad communities and displacing hundreds of them. It's estimated that 250 households in the affected areas, mainly pastoralists and rural communities, do not have adequate access to food because of declining livestock production and lack of saleable animals due to poor livestock health conditions. With no humanitarian assistance and intervention efforts from the local administration, draughts affects stills persist, and this made a large part of the village inhabitable. Also, livestock prices continue to decline, affecting basic survival. Lack of health centres, medical supplies and trained midwives increased the plight of these communities, by increasing mother and child deaths during delivery. Most of the obstetric complication cases are referred to Las’ano hospital, which is 800 km away. During the last rainy reasons with winds above average, 70 houses were destroyed partially or completely, health posts and schools were destroyed. The Wadahal-Dialogue Project is helping communities to set up a resource mobilisation initiative by forming committees that oversee the fundraising activities and opening bank accounts that are connected to Sokaab Platform. The Project will use the Sokaab platform to track the transactions of the bank accounts and contributions from community members and the diaspora. Through Sokaab, members of the public will be able to access these financial transactions by visiting Community contributions are expected to be contributed by the residents of Lafaweyne and its diaspora. The fundraising committee is requesting the community from Lafaweyne and its diaspora to contribute to the district project where the community will choose the priority project that they want to invest.
