Amanda Lindhout, Canadian humanitarian, author wins the Amoud Foundation Awdal Achievement 
Award for 2014. The award decision was announced at the Amoud Foundation Annual Dinner on 
Saturday, February 22, 2014, in Irving, Texas, USA. 
Ms. Lindhout was abducted by insurgents in Somalia in 2008 and held captive for 463 days during 
which she endured unspeakable ordeal. After her release in November 2009, she wrote a riveting 
memoir, A House in the Sky, about her ordeal. One would think that after such an ordeal, she would 
not want to have anything to do with Somalia ever again. But you would be wrong. She could not forget
the level of human suffering she had witnessed there, especially by women and children. In 2010, she 
founded the Global Enrichment Foundation to provide humanitarian assistance in Somalia, including 
university scholarships to needy Somali women. In 2011, she was back in Somalia to advance her 
philanthropic mission. 

Somali kids at doorstep of death

gaajoMogadishu - Somalia's 2011 famine is over. Militants have been pushed out of Mogadishu. Political progress is being made. And yet the UN and Somali government are pleading with international donors to help a country they say is still in crisis.
Aid groups, pressed to respond to emergency situations in Somalia in recent years, have not been able to put the time or resources into building the country's systems, the UNs aid chief for Somalia said on Tuesday.
Many in the country remain in dire circumstances.
"We have 50 000 children at the doorstep of death," because of severe malnourishment, Philippe Lazzarini said.
International donors, squeezed by the continuing crisis in Syria and new emergencies in South Sudan and Central African Republic, have given less money to Somalia.
Donors also have continuing concerns about the theft and corruption of aid money in a country with less effective government oversight of money.
