First of all, nobody in his right mind seeks charity directly from a bank.

Secondly, if you were ill-advised to write such an odd request, you should have noted the relief assistance already given by the Somali Federal Government in an attempt to persuade the Bank Management that the FGS is in support of such humanitarian aid, and copying to the Federal President for this strange correspondence to the Bank.

Postscript. One reader comments on the article this way:

“Ooh poor man!! he was not informed that his predecessor had given the go ahead that all grants from the International Financial Institutions would be received through the FGS. If you read the second last paragraph, he was reminded of the right gate of entry”
