Description : ICRC website, photo gallery “Somalia: Food support for 90,000 people affected by drought”, 4 December 2017
“Pastoralists in Somalia have been accustomed to severe harsh conditions, but a prolonged drought has brought many to the edge of starvation. With the support of the International Committee of the Red Cross, 90,000 people living in towns and internally displaced camps recently received food. Among them are 9,000 displaced families who also received sleeping mats, kitchen utensils, basins, jerrycans, tarpaulins, mosquito nets and hygiene parcels.”
