Somalia drought
After more than two decades of conflict, recurrent climate disasters and outbreaks of disease, including the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the humanitarian situation in Somalia was already dire. Even before the current drought, an estimated 7.7 million Somalis were in desperate need of humanitarian assistance. Pictured here you can see the impacts of this drought on this gentleman who is skin and bone, severely malnourished. The current drought has wiped out crop harvests and livestock dying due to a lack of water and pasture, depriving many pastoral communities of their only source of income. The country has seen three consecutive failed rainy seasons. The fourth, which is supposed to start in April and continue through June, is also projected to be below average. The United Nations and its partners have been heavily engaged in providing humanitarian support. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Somalia is currently one of the most severely drought-impacted country in the Horn of Africa. Some 4.5 million Somalis are directly affected by the drought, and about 700,000 people have been displaced. Without the support from the UN and other non-profit organisations like ourselves, these people would not have even the smallest slither of hope.
