In this photo taken Thursday, April 2, 2020, Abdalla Sabdow, a former security guard and a father of six, checks to see if money he was expecting from his cousin who lives in New York has arrived, but which didn't because his cousin is on lockdown and unable to make the transfer, at the Dahabshiil money transfer service in Mogadishu, Somalia.
