Somalia: Warnings of the Dangers of Drought in Several Regions of Somalia
Aid agencies operating in Somalia issued a warning on Sunday (July 20) that there were more than 300,000 malnourished children in Somalia and a total of 2.9 million people in need of life-saving help. The statement said that signs of a drought were re-emerging in Somalia and said it urged that these must not be ignored in order to avoid a relapse into the conditions of the 2011 catastrophe.
Women in Somalia say they want to see the country’s constitution clearly mentioning the full rights of women and the exact number of officials they will have in the country’s future governmental institutions.
