Somalia: Hunger crisis 2021

In Somalia, 5.6 million people are currently food insecure and 2.8 million people cannot meet their daily food requirements due to the compounding impacts of extended drought, flooding, desert locust infestations, the economic impacts of COVID-19 and conflict. This Emergency Appeal will enable the IFRC to support the Somalia Red Crescent Society (SRCS) to provide humanitarian assistance to more than 500,000 people in Somaliland and Puntland. It will contribute to the IFRC’s Pan-Africa Zero Hunger Initiative, which aims at lifting the most vulnerable people in Africa from poverty and eradicating dependence on food assistance.
