Somaliland: Families chasing the rain
Description: A large double decker truck is quickly making its way towards Garadag from Fadigaab. It is carrying nine families and what is left of their herds: some sheep, goats and donkeys. It is even carrying their homes – herders can dismantle their huts quickly and rebuild them in different locations. This is what they have done for centuries, following the movements of their animals and the alternating of the seasons. But these nine families, in the last six months, because of the drought, had to do this six times, looking for drinkable water for themselves and their animals. Oxfam is there with life-saving support, but we urgently need your help to do more. You can help: Donate now https://donate.oxfam.org.uk/emergency/eastafrica?cid=rdt_eastafrica

A deadly lack of safe water in Somalia I UNICEF
Description: In 2011 famine was declared in Somalia. Now, in 2017, famine once again is looming over the drought-struck country. Not only are children suffering from malnutrition but this has resulted in an outbreak of cholera and acute diarrhea. As of today, 22,000 cases have been reported and Baidoa, Somalia, is one of the epicentres. There is no clean water for drinking or sanitation, which means diseases can quickly spread. We’re on the ground delivering life-saving supplies, support and helping nurses like Amina boost morale of the patients. Together with partners we’re aiming to reach 1.5 million people with clean water and sanitation services in 2017.
