  • Somalia

New York, August 04 (QNA) - The United Nations humanitarian agency has provided $9.5 million as emergency humanitarian assistance to famine-affected communities in Somalia.
Adam Abdelmawla, Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations and Resident Coordinator for Humanitarian Affairs in Somalia, said that the threat of famine in Somalia and the displaced had increased.
He emphasized that Somalia was on the brink of a humanitarian crisis, but funding to meet the rapidly growing needs was still insufficient to prevent famine.
More than 6 million people in Somalia suffer from acute food insecurity, 1.4 million children suffer from acute malnutrition, and drought has displaced 759,000 people, half a million of them in the first three months of 2022. (QNA)
