Description : The country experiences two rainy seasons that fall between April and June and later on in the year between October and December. The months in between the two wet seasons are hot and harsh on farmers who need to keep their lands watered. More than 38,000 people in 2015 benefitted from distributions of tractors and other farm tools in Somalia, while the ICRC also completed 27 surface water and rain water harvesting projects across the country.
