Somalia is one of the countries seriously affected by devastating civil war.
The anarchy and civil strive that followed the downfall of military regime have not only caused physical devastation's to the public and private institutions but also created physiological impacts to the entire population. As a result, a complete destruction of political, economic, and social services occurred.

The civil war that erupted in the late 1990s seriously affected the public and private sectors. The education system, health facilities, communications, infrastructures, water and the electricity systems were either destroyed or looted.

Many Somali people were forced to flee from their place of residence and sought safety from in their home clan areas and in refugee camps abroad. After, several years of civil wars, conditions are now improving in many parts of Somalia and private institutions are emerging to serve the needs of the Somali people despite the lack of strong government that controls in all parts of the country.
