Out of the 2.6 million displaced people in Somalia, one million were uprooted during the 2017 drought crisis. After losing their crops, livestock and livelihood, they had no option but to move into crowded camps in the hope of getting food and aid. In 2018, an average of 2,777 people are being displaced every day.
The shocking reality of Somalia’s climate-driven displacement crisis is premiering globally on the WITHIN app. The release coincides with new survey data from Save the Children and Action Against Hunger, which finds that one in five children in these displacement settlements is suffering from malnutrition.
