Somalia Drought Emergency

Over 300,000 children face death by starvation in Somalia.

Four seasons of failed rain have forced 670,000 people to desert their homes in search of food and water.

The famine has destroyed crops and livestock, and has also increased rates of malnutrition and disease. Tuberculosis infections in the country are now amongst the worst recorded in the world, with millions of lives at risk.

 

Men, women, and children in Somalia are dying — they need our urgent support.

3.5 million people are experiencing food insecurity.

The lack of rainfall and extremely high temperatures have destroyed crops and livestock, with local farming communities left without an income or food supply.

Somalia is one of the world’s most poverty-stricken nations, and only 42% of estimated cases of TB are detected. This leaves a huge number of TB cases in the community undetected and untreated, enabling further transmissions.

This is an emergency situation — your support can save lives in Somalia.
