In Somalia, Oxfam estimates there are 3.2 million people experiencing emergency or crisis levels of food insecurity, including 1.6 million people in Somaliland and Puntland. As many as 1.1 million people have been displaced by drought, 738,500 since November 2016.
Oxfam estimates that 6.7 million people (more than half the population) are in need of humanitarian assistance.
So far, Oxfam has helped 45,408 people with clean water via trucks and improved access to water infrastructure, and distributed 18,468 hygiene kits (to help families avoid water-borne diseases like cholera), and has provided cash to 33,821 people. Oxfam’s goal is to assist 200,000 people.
We need to scale up those efforts, and we urgently need your support to help save lives.
