report UN Children's Fund

By Najwa Mekki

DJIBOUTI CITY, Djibouti, 24 August 2011 – In what looks like a rubbish dump off of the main road southwest of the capital city Djibouti, a few hundred families have set-up makeshift tukuls and call them home. They have no water, no toilets, no electricity, and barely any hope.

The place is called Bouldougo – the Somali word meaning ‘knocked out’. Some have been here for years, others just arrived. Some have fled drought, others conflict. They come from Ethiopia, Somalia and interior regions of Djibouti.

Poverty, hardship and struggle

22 Jul 2011 description

Drought has caused famine in parts of Somalia and killed tens of thousands of people in recent months. The situation could get even worse unless proper action is taken urgently. In the Bakool and Lower Shabelle areas, acute malnutrition tops 50 percent and death rates exceed six per 10,000 people per day. Droughts have been a regular occurrence in the past in many parts of the world with grave consequences on food security and malnutrition. With climate change, severe droughts are likely to occur more often and to affect larger areas.
