UN data shows that the floods that occurred due to the increasing rainfall in Somalia affected 1 million people. 400.000 homes were also destroyed in the floods.
IHH took an immediate action and transported drinking water to regions in need. The people of Somalia that were already struggling to meet their basic daily needs and are dependent on economic support are now in an even more desperate situation.
IHH distributed food packets consisting of rice, sugar, flour, oil and dates and hygiene packets to ensure personal hygiene and detergent packets to 639 families living in the Beledwyne and Qoraxinka regions that were most affected by the floods. Around 3.800 people benefitted from this aid.
IHH will launch campaigns to provide more aid for the people of this region.
