Somaliland Drought Appeal


Somaliland is currently experiencing an unprecedented dry season that resulted in prolonged period of extreme drought in most of the regions of the country. This affected hundreds of thousands of nomads as their livestock died in the thousands due to the erosion of their grazing land and the drying-up of waterholes. The consequence of this adverse drought is a massive rural movement in search of pastures green. 

The current situation on the ground is as follows:

·       A prolonged drought dried up the waterholes due to the lack of rain

·       Food and water are scarce in large parts of Somaliland

·       Diseases are spreading fast as people are getting weak and malnourished

·        Livestock which is the backbone of the country’s economy and for the sustenance of the nomads are dying by the thousands

·       Nearly 60% of the population of Somaliland are nomads and therefore, are suffering greatly from this drought.

Somaliland is not a rich country and is ill-equipped to handle such enormous crises on its own and is therefore, appealing to all charities and relief organisations in the UK and other countries to send whatever possible aid they can provide to contain this natural disaster.


Our people are eagerly waiting for the generosity of the international community at this difficult time of our history.
