UN releases $3 milion to combat expected flooding in Somalia

87

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said the funds will reduce the humanitarian impact of the predicted flooding to communities that are expected to be the hardest hit in remote and hard-to-reach locations of Jamame, Luuq, and Afgooye.

The move comes as heavy rainfall has been affecting Somalia since April 19, causing floods, flash floods, and river overflows that have resulted in casualties and damage.

According to the OCHA, four people have died, of whom three in Somaliland, northern Somalia, and one in Hirshabelle State, south-central Somalia.
