Somalia may be one of the most unsafe countries in the world, but the people there are not sitting down and doing nothing about it.

Business in Mogadishu and other towns in Somalia is booming, with new buildings and other infrastructure coming up everyday. A new 200 bed Ultra Modern Hospital has just been constructed in the capital, and I must say that our old and ugly KNH pales in comparison. It may not have as much equipment or bed capacity, but you’ll be forgiven to think it’s located somewhere in Europe.

Here are some pics courtesy of Yassin Juma.

It doesn’t stop there. Here are pics of some high rise apartment blocks under construction.
