Drought in central Somalia threatens four million people

Drought in central Somalia threatens four million people

Mogadishu, Dec 13 (Prensa Latina) At least four million people are currently exposed to hunger as a result of drought, especially in central Somalia, while the country faces other threats such as that of the al-Shabaab armed group.

Families are striving to get essential articles such as food and water, making it impossible for them to survive the harsh climatic and economic changes, according to a report posted on on Monday.

In fact, the Galgaduud region in the central state of Galmudug is one of the hardest-hit areas of the country, which has been in conflict and chaos since late President Mohamed Siad Barre was overthrown in 1991.

Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble asked the international community for help, after a United Nations report on November 23 showed the worsening of the situation.

Last week, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) called on international partners to speed up the delivery of food to the affected families, after stating that the matter needed to be dealt with urgently.

Since 1990, Somalia, on the frontline of climate change, has been affected by 12 droughts and 19 floods.
