The State of Hunger in Somalia
Gripped by the worst drought in 40 years, chronic food shortages, and more than 20 years of conflict, Somalia is on the brink of famine as more than six million people face acute food insecurity.
Prolonged drought has killed one-third of the country’s livestock and food prices have skyrocketed. More than one million people have been forced to flee their homes. Without sufficient access to clean water and nutritious food, severe malnutrition and disease will continue to rise.
