The CAF World Giving Index measures the average percentage of people in each country who donate money, volunteer or help a stranger. This year, 140 countries were surveyed. Interesting enough, of the global top10, four countries are of the fragile states index; They are ranked as follows

  1. Iraq 81%
  2. Libya 79%
  3. Kuwait 78%
  4. Somalia 77%
  5. United Arab Emirates 75%
  6. Malawi 74%
  7. Botswana 73%
  8. Sierra Leone 73%
  9. United States of America 73%
  10. Saudi Arabia 73%

While we might expect a collective crisis to bring out the worst in people – think opportunistic collaborators or war-time looters – it seems that most people rally round and support others. “It appears that increasingly fragile civil societies, coupled with greater need among the population, encourages more people to be responsive out of sheer necessity,” the CAF report argues, World Economic Forum reports

    Well I do not know why this is a surprise, somalis and somalia is not all doom and gloom. People are surviving by helping each other out in most difficult situations. Yes we have failed state but our kind heart never failed.

    God to see,this.But I do not know from which point the Somalia are kind?Leave alone kindness,there is big suggregation among cluns. Specifically,if someone is a christian,they don’t have a place to that person.If bad situation comes,the first attack will starts to be in acted to that person.
    I have worked at the refugee camp with this people to this people,they are an opposites what the survey suggested.To me the US SHOULD comes first,as it embraces people of all kind from all nation with all opprtunities.

    Before we are Muslims and Christians we are human being. And Somalis are capable doing both good or bad deeds. So you futile attempt to dehumanizing Somalis is ridiculous.
