Somalia is experiencing the worst drought in decades. The Somali people are facing one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world today. One in every three children living in South-Central Somalia is malnourished according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). The drought’s impact has been exacerbated by the increase in food prices and ongoing violent conflict. The violence makes it incredibly difficult to deliver vital supplies of food, water and emergency provisions inside Somalia.
