“Somalia’s coping mechanisms are significantly less than those of the neighbouring countries. Therefore, the impact of it [floods, locusts and COVID-19] is not simply humanitarian but has the potential to reverse some of the political and security gains that the international community has invested in over the past decade.”

“We are assisting about 240,000 people who were displaced from their homes. The floods submerged people’s markets and businesses, thereby curtailing business activities and leaving many people without any source of income. Commodity prices have skyrocketed, harvests destroyed and the little food coming to the market is too expensive”.
