Summary

More than 1.7 million people in Somalia, Africa, have been displaced by heavy rains and flooding since early October. Flooding from the worst drought in 40 years has overflowed Somalia's Shabelle River, and the damage is growing as it hits nearby towns. This year has seen the worst recorded heavy rains and flooding in decades in Somalia. That's why we need rapid assistance. The project aims to help Somalis return to their daily lives as soon as possible after flooding.

Challenge

Around the world, the problems caused by climate disasters are causing great damage. Somalia, in Africa, has experienced its worst drought in 40 years and has been experiencing heavy rains and flooding since the beginning of October. The result has been over 1.7 million flood victims. The Shabelle River in Somalia overflowed its banks, causing even more damage when the water poured into a nearby town. Transmission is expected to continue for some time, making the situation very dangerous.

Solution

Epidemics are a problem not to take lightly. We will give priority to the support of sanitary products because we have to fight against invisible enemies. In a situation where even medical equipment is submerged and difficult to find, hygiene products should be a top priority. In addition, there are plans to provide food aid and emergency relief kits to the growing number of victims. We are sure that just the improvement of the basic medical environment will be of great help.

Long-Term Impact

We plan to start by helping those most likely to be affected. Vulnerable people are present in every emergency, but they are often always far away from help. In Somalia, the price of basic commodities skyrocketed when the city was flooded. It is important to ensure that there are no marginalized people in emergency disaster relief. It is particularly difficult for people who are vulnerable to disasters to find goods. We will apply first and then continue to help more people.
