As Somalia descends into unending political unrest and extremist groups propel into higher heights, the country’s poor people increase to starve to death, Villa Puntland Reports.
Hundreds of thousands of people, most of them women and children continue to flee their homes amid severe droughts due to no rain falls in the country.
United Nations emergency teams visited in several towns in Southern Somalia increased the number of drought-displaced people to 150,000 people that have been recently displaced by the droughts, leaving the landscape littered by the skeletons of starved animals.
“There are now over 150,000 people that have newly been displaced in Baidoa because of the drought,” said John Ging Director of the Operational Division of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
Despite an outcried global warming that led to droughts in many parts in the world, Somalia seems to have being suffering the worst aftermath of these droughts as mothers choose between which child to feed.
The horn African rich natural resource country had recently inaugurated new President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo who had wide public support after winning competitive Presidential elections in February.
Shortly after his inauguration, the new head of the state immediately called for nationwide emergency to reach out to the drought-affected people and regions in the country.
