Qatar sends aid to drought-hit Somalia

QNA/Doha

In light of the worsening drought conditions in Somalia, Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) in co-operation with its strategic partner Qatar Charity, delivered 45 tonnes of food assistance to Somalia in order to address the humanitarian situation. The aid was delivered in co-operation with the Amiri Air Force, QNA reported.
HE the Director-General of QFFD, Khalifa al-Kuwari, said: "This aid comes at a critical time, particularly as Somalia faces an elevated rise in food insecurity levels. Those affected are not only suffering from farming challenges, but essential access to water, and therefore, the assistance delivered today in co-operation with its strategic partner Qatar Charity, will allow us to address this humanitarian crisis quickly before it escalates."
In November last year, QFFD launched co-operation with the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation to support anticipatory financing mechanisms to enhance agriculture and livestock production and to address the humanitarian impact of floods and droughts in Somalia.
