Somalia Drought Appeal 

Severe drought conditions continue to compound the humanitarian situation in several parts of Somalia. The drought affected 5.4 million Somalis in the country and displaced internally more than 1M people by the drought since 2016.

The drought is induced by two consecutive seasons of poor rainfall. In the worst affected areas, poor rainfall and lack of water has wiped out crops and killed livestock, while communities are being forced to sell their assets, and borrow food and money to survive. The drought situation is compounded by protracted conflict which is causing displacements, seasonal climatic shocks and disease outbreaks.

According to Somalia and Somaliland governments, United Nations and other international organizations, the immediate urgent needs are:

 Provision of Clean Water: Widespread water shortages in the drought-affected areas have created Acute Watery Diarhoea (AWD)/Cholera outbreak 12 regions out of 18 regions in the country with 558 deaths and 28,408 cases. Water trucking and rehabilitation of wells and boreholes are thus top priorities.

 Emergency Food Distribution: the country is at the brink of famine – the malnutrition rates are currently the highest in the world according to United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Providing emergency food aid and supporting large feeding centers which provide the masses food and nutrition are top priorities.

 Medical Assistance:  Disease and illness is spreading fast in Somalia. Watery diarrhea outbreaks are reported across the country claiming lives poor children and mothers. Establishing mobile clinics in affected areas particularly AWD/Cholera outbreak regions remains a top priority.

Provision of Shelter: according to the UN/OCHA 1M people are internally displaced due to the drought since 2016. These people do not have any kind of accommodation or sanitation. They live in poor shelters made of woods covered with cartons worn out clothes. Provision of temporary shelter such us plastic sheets is top priorities.

We are responding to the humanitarian needs of some of the most vulnerable IDP camps.They urgently need essentials such as food, hygiene and sanitation kits, water containers, emergency shelter and short-term work opportunities.

With your support we will be able to reach even more people in desperate need.
