This is the newly elected President's first visit to the United States as President and first meeting with members of Congress. In the meeting, he discussed the recent security gains and economic development in Mogadishu. Over the last several months, the U.N. Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that the number of attacks on aid workers fell from 13 in October to 4 and 5 in November and December. The African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) has liberated Mogadishu and other areas from Al-Shabaab, and more humanitarian relief is reaching those who desperately need it.
