of schools and health institutions in Somalia.
government radio station disclosed yesterday that the donation
was the first part of a large amount of aid money earmarked
for Somalia by the Arab League.

addressed a summit of the Arab League in Cairo and appealed
for financial assistance, saying that Somalia, as one of the
family of Arab nations, deserved support.
