THE association is arranging an exhibition called Borama Comes to Henley at the Old Fire Station Gallery from June 5 to 10.
This is a follow-up to last year’s visit by Somaliland’s second lady and to show the people of Henley how Borama lives and to display some artefacts.
We seek to stimulate interest and to attract new members for the association.
Meanwhile, there has been a gratifying breakthrough in getting aid to 40 veterans (75 per cent with 1939/45 war service) who live in and around Borama. They all require eye surgery for cataracts.
Henley has had a friendship link with Borama since 1982. Communication has been somewhat sporadic at times but recently the new Mayor of Borama appointed Hassan Ahmed Ainan, a councillor, to be responsible for the welfare of the veterans, all of whom had served with the Somaliland Scouts Regiment.
