Radio Bar Kulan

Public information support for AMISOM included the creation of a radio station in Somalia, aimed at gaining a foothold in the Somali information environment.

The Somali language broadcaster Radio Bar Kulan was established in 2010 as part of the core UNSOA logistical support package, and its operations continue to be supported through the Trust Fund.

Radio Bar Kulan’s mission is to provide balanced, objective and inclusive news, and expand its broadcasting services across Somalia to counter the misinformation of violent obstructionist groups and political spoilers, while creating awareness about AMISOM, UN and peace building initiatives.
