The TRC has always seen the importance in providing humanitarian relief for African countries, with its host national societies lacking the capacity to procure the needs of its vulnerable population amid man-made and natural disasters like; droughts and civil war leading to hunger & malnutrition.
As these countries look for ways for sustainable development, the TRC acknowledges that lack of nutrition is the root cause for holding countries back, as persons essentially need energy to function or achieve in terms of education and livelihoods.
North Bakool and Lower Shabelle regions in the south of Somali are declared as drought zone by the United Nations on 20 July 2011. According to the latest information, the regions in the north of the country would be also declared as drought zones in the following months, and if it is not intervened, declaration of famine for the northern regions is also most likely.
Half of the population of the country (3.7 million) is affected by the crisis and 2.8 million of the population has been living in the southern regions.
