FACING FOOD INSECURITY
As the world remains busy dealing with other problems, our brothers and sisters in Somalia and other parts of Africa are fighting hunger silently. The high price of food and continuous conflict makes it difficult for families to improve their situation and with nearly one million people already fleeing areas of Ethiopia, many communities have nowhere left to turn.
An exceedingly dry season followed by torrential downpours has left the region in disarray, with roads and bridges washed away and huge areas of viable farmland now waterlogged. So far, the low levels of rainfall this year have caused a lower yield of crop production in early 2019 and more people could find themselves back in food insecurity, facing severe food shortages.
