The humanitarian situation in Somalia has been deteriorating since drought was declared in late 2016. It is estimated that 6.2 million people are in need of humanitarian aid during this period. Most affected being women, children and the old in the community. Poor rains received during the last 2 years have made the already harsh conditions worse with acute shortage of clean drinking water, failed crops, deaths of thousands of livestock and sharp increase in food prices making the situation worse and unbearable. As the situation worsens, a huge number of the population is migrating from the rural areas and moving into the urban areas creating IDP camps adding pressure to the already stressed food and water supplies.
