The drought in Somalia is causing so much suffering and pains to the children and people of Somalia. 

In a single hospital in Somalia, more than two dozen children have died of hunger in the past two months alone.⁠

.⁠

Dr Yahye Abdi Garun has watched emaciated parents stumble in from rural areas gripped by the driest drought in the Horn of Africa region in decades. And yet, no humanitarian aid arrives.⁠

.⁠

Shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine, a donor who was preparing to give $500,000 to a Somali aid group told its executive director Hussein Kulmiye it was redirecting the money to help Ukrainians instead.⁠

.⁠

The war in Ukraine has abruptly drawn millions of dollars away from other crises, more social workers say. Somalia, facing a food shortage largely driven by the war, might be the most vulnerable.⁠

.⁠

The $2.2bn appeal for Ukraine is almost 80 percent funded, according to United Nations data, an “exceptional” level for any crisis at the midway point of the year, said Angus Urquhart, humanitarian and crisis lead for the Development Initiatives consultancy. The smaller appeal for Somalia is just 30 percent funded.⁠

.⁠

And now, as Somalis flee the drought and fill more than 500 camps in the city of Baidoa, aid workers are making “horrific” choices to help one camp and ignore 10 others, Norwegian Refugee Council Secretary General Jan Egeland said, telling The Associated Press he is “angry and ashamed”.⁠

Please for the love of God and humanity, help us to rise money to provide medication, food and water for these children, Nothing is too small. 

Please show your support by donating what you can and as you do so may the God almighty bless and protect you and your family from harm and danger. Amen
