Many people are on the brink of death in Galmudug region due to the drought according to the local Drought Response Committee.

A committee member Mohamed Hassan Hussein described the dire situation of the local people affected by the drought and appealed for quick humanitarian emergency in order to save lives.

“We toured many areas in Galkmudug region for the second time and we saw extensive ordeal of the drought where 147,000 families were displaced. I hereby propose a specific appeal to the National Drought Response Committee to have a special consideration to the plight of Galmudug people who have not experienced any rainfall since the start of the year” said Mohamed.

Widespread drought in Somalia for the last two years resulted livestock belonging to the pastoralists to perish and subsequent outbreak of cholera disease complicated life existence for the majority of the population.
