DROUGHT

The Horn of Africa is experiencing the worst drought in 40 years.

“Only a “massive” and immediate scaling-up of funds and humanitarian relief can save Somalia from famine, a UN spokesperson has warned, as aid workers report children starving to death “before our eyes” amid rapidly escalating levels of malnutrition.”
“According to the latest IPC assessment for Somalia, an estimated 1.5 million under-fives face acute malnutrition by the end of the year, including 386,400 who are likely to be severely malnourished. Those numbers are only expected to go up.” – Somalia: ‘The worst humanitarian crisis we’ve ever seen,’ The Guardian, Wed 22 Jun 2022

  • Many thousands of families are losing their incomes, animals and crops.

For nearly two decades Humanitarian African Relief Organization (HARO) has facilitated major emergency response, orphan care, women & children’s health programs and youth employment initiatives throughout the Horn of Africa. Most recently HARO led a campaign to fundraise for the Waheen Market fire in Hargeisa, Somaliland which raised 1.1 million USD.
