Somalia Food Shortage Appeal
More than half of the population – 6.2 million people – are urgently in need of humanitarian assistance. The situation for children is extremely serious; 363, 000 children are acutely malnourished and in need of critical nutritional support.
Somalia is in the grip of an intense drought. In the worst affected areas, lack of water has wiped out crops and killed livestock. Communities are being forced to sell their assets and borrow food and money to survive.
