Crisis in Somalia

Nearly half of Somalia’s estimated population of 14 million are in need of emergency assistance due to the severe and widespread drought.  Millions have no food and water. More than 3 million Somalis are acutely malnourished, including 388,000 children who are in need of critical nutrition support. 

And the humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate. In fact, almost 1 million people were displaced by the drought in 2017. At the same time, a growing number of Somali refugees are returning to Somalia from other countries in the region.
