UAE distributes aid in drought-stricken Somalia

Puntland: Teams from the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation has begun distributing emergency relief assistance to Somali families in villages in Puntland State, northeastern Somalia, as part of the second phase of a campaign launched to assist those ravaged by drought in the region.

A total of 900 tonnes of food aid is being delivered to help recipients endure the hardships caused by the drought that has plagued their land and affected farms and livestock. This follows the Foundation’s provision of 824 tonnes of food items to around 30,000 people in Jubaland, as part of the campaign’s first phase.
