Somaliland Mission to the UK Celebrates Edna Adan’s 80th Birthday

London, 8 September 2017 - The Somaliland Mission to the UK congratulates Edna Adan as she reaches the milestone of her 80th birthday today.

We thank Edna for her long and distinguished record, in particular with regard to maternal health and women’s rights, in which she has been a trailblazer for many decades. The Mission also recognises Edna’s service to Somaliland as the country’s Foreign Minister between 2003 and 2006, after previously serving as the Minister of Family Welfare and Social Development - Somaliland’s first female cabinet minister. The Mission wishes Edna all the best in her new role as Special Envoy to the talks between Somaliland and Somalia, as she continues to speak up for the rights of Somalilanders across the world.

The Mission is pleased to note that Edna will be spending the next few days in London, and looks forward to celebrating her birthday with the Somaliland community here. If you would like to celebrate Edna’s birthday by making a donation to the Edna Adan Hospital Foundation, please visit the website at
