Focus on Somalia

Somalia consistently experiences devastating flash flooding, drought, and other conditions onset by global warming. Flooding in recent years has affected more than 600,000 people in various regions throughout the country.

It’s also one of the poorest countries, where, in 2021, 5.9 million people require humanitarian assistance and protection. In addition, natural disasters, including desert locust infestations, drought, and floods, along with the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated humanitarian needs among a population already living under the strain of widespread poverty and decades of armed conflict and insecurity.

Yet, the Somali people are resourceful and resilient, and they do whatever they can to survive and thrive through it all.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Somalia

Islamic Relief USA works to provide these vulnerable communities with emergency aid, along with much-needed humanitarian projects focused on livelihood, food security, children in need, water development, and education.

Here’s just a sampling of recent efforts for families in need across Somalia

  • Providing essential aid to drought-prone communities
  • Implementing innovative rainwater harvesting systems to strengthen capacity during disaster
  • Improving access to maternal, child, and primary health care to prevent and treat illness
