President Hassan Shiekh Mohamud, who returned back yesterday from a trip that took him to Europe and Egypt, has told at a news conference in Mogadishu that the world community is ready to help Somalia and its people but the Somalis are first needed to help themselves and start rebuilding their nation after long years of chaos and war.
