3.2 million people in Somalia in need of emergency food – WFP

The World Food Programme (WFP) has expressed concern over the deepening hunger and nutrition crisis in Somalia, as the effects of drought intensify.

WFP said the food and nutrition situation in Somalia has worsened, because of a dangerous mix of conditions including poor rains, disease outbreaks, widespread livestock deaths, and hundreds of thousands of people being forced to move away from their homes by the drought.

WFP said there were now some 3.2 million people in the country in need of emergency food aid.

It added that despite large-scale assistance improving conditions for many, a growing number of people are still facing severe hunger, and Malnutrition is worsening especially among mothers and children.
