Somaliland ravaged by crippling drought, with families left without food or income

The self-declared state of Somaliland is ravaged by one of the worst droughts on record.

AWD and cholera have claimed the lives of
 some 730 people across Somalia in 2017.
Hundreds of thousands of cattle have died, leaving families without income or food. More than 3.2 million people across Somaliland and Somalia need urgent food aid.

The drought has led to outbreaks of deadly diseases, such as cholera and Acute Watery Diarrhea (AWD).
Hundreds of thousands of children are also suffering from malnutrition.
