Taiwan’s Rep Office in Somaliland Donates Relief Supplies

Somaliland Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Minister Liban Yousuf Osman receives aid from a representative of the new Taiwan rep office in Hargeisa.

Just weeks after it opened, Taiwan’s new representative office in the self-declared state of Somaliland embarked on its first foray into African “donation diplomacy” by providing local officials with humanitarian supplies and then leveraging the event for public diplomacy benefits on social media.

It’s a pleasure to collaborate with @somalilandmfa @DeputyLiban @SimplyHelp for the donation.#It’s not a first help from the @SimplyHelp but a support from the
deepest heart of the foundation and #Taiwan #Togetherstrong #NGOcooperation
