Somalia is experiencing its worst drought in a decade, with millions going hungry and being forced from their homes in search of food and water.

The charity Save the Children says, the impact on families is being felt more severely this season because of multiple and prolonged droughts.

A team from aid agency Islamic Relief, visited a camp in Iftin in Bardhere district at the end of January in the Gedo region, where 2,000 families have sought help.

Islamic Relief’s programme manager Shukri Mohamud said, It was a shocking sight to see thousands of families in such a desperate situation in the camp.

The situation on the refugee camps of Mali was exacerbated by the covid-19 pandemic and unreliable rains this year.
