In Somalia, a toxic mix of conflict, severe drought and floods has left the country with almost 4 million displaced people. Loop has provided a safe, free, independent and anonymous platform for people to report on aid diversion and human rights violations. The time has come to extend our reach to marginalised groups and excluded communities, who, tragically, remain unheard. Join us in this vital mission, for their voices deserve to be acknowledged and amplified.
In Somalia some individuals lack access to life-saving resources and are susceptible to abuse. Loop enables them to report their needs and seek assistance while safeguarding against further exclusion. Help us reach more women, disabled people and ethnic minorities. Local CSOs are engaging with these groups and are eager to learn about and promote Loop, empowering their communities to raise their voices. Your contribution will help us to keep them safe and urgently secure the aid they need.
Our mission is to enable local people to be at the centre of humanitarian aid, offering them a safe and easy to use tool that helps them interact with organisations by providing crucial feedback that can help shape the quality of services and assistance they receive. Loop aims to bridge the cultural and digital divide by providing an Interactive Voice Response and Reply (IVRR) input channel fully available in the local languages Maxatiri, Maay, Benadiri and Barawani.
Women, children, disabled people and minority groups in Somalia can report safely about risks, abuse and to request assistance. Survivors of abuse in Somalia can use Loop and get assistance as a result of safe reporting. This data helps to inform donors to fund organisations providing assistance This data helps to inform program staff about risks to help them to keep communities they support safe.
