Somalia Crisis – Food for Life Global researching options

July 21 – SOMALIA

Food for Life Global is currently researching options for providing some relief to the estimated 3.7 million people affected by famine occurring in the Bakool and Lower Shabelle regions of southern Somalia. The UN has appealed for 300 million US dollars over the next two months to bolster its response in the affected areas. “Our hope is to provide at help to at least some of the people,” said Food for Life Director, Paul Turner. “FFLG will do what it does best and serve hot vegan meals. But our success is fully dependent on the support of our donors.”

Tens of thousands  of people are currently migrating to escape the severe drought wrecking havoc in southern and central parts of the war-ravaged country with an equally large number already having perished across the region, most of them children. The UN estimates that humanitarian agencies need 1.6 billion US dollars for Somalia alone, with UN Director, Ban Ki-Moon stating, “Humanitarian agencies need urgent funding to save lives. If funding is not made available for humanitarian interventions now, the famine is likely to continue and spread. The overall requirement is 1.6 billion dollars for Somalia, roughly 300 million US dollars is needed in the next two months to provide an adequate response to famine affected areas.”
