Somalis in Kenya step up blood donation for Mogadishu bomb victims

There have been pleas for blood donations and medical supplies and a suburb in Kenya has responded.

Somalis from all over the world are pitching in to help victims of the worst bomb attack seen in the capital Mogadishu.

Over 300 people have been confirmed dead and hundreds injured and in critical condition from the blast that has been attributed to Al-Shabab militants.

In seeking help for the survivors and injured, there have been pleas for blood donations and medical supplies and a suburb in Kenya has responded.

Residents of the Nairobi suburb of Eastleigh, most of whom are Somali gathered in their hundred to donate blood to be sent back home.

The area popularly known as “ Little Mogadishu” was bustling as several Somali’s and Kenyan’s responded to the call via a social media campaign under the #KenyansForSomali and showed up at makeshift donation centres to help.
