5.4 million people in Somalia are in critical need of food assistance.


Significantly drier and above-average temperatures coupled with widespread conflict and instability are increasing the demand for basic necessities such as food and water. Somalia is at risk of a catastrophic humanitarian crisis, with 4.9 million people facing food insecurity. The failed 2019 Gu rains have caused widespread crop failure and a decline in livestock productivity, rapidly pushing communities in the worst-affected areas into a food insecurity Crisis or worse. The number of people in the Crisis and Emergency levels of food insecurity is projected to reach 2.2 million by July.


IDRF is currently providing food packages and clean water to over 20,000 people across several regions in Somalia. Each household food package contains: 20kg of rice, 20kg of flour, 20kg of sugar, 10kg of beans, 2kg of dates and 5 litres of cooking oil. IDRF is also providing clean water to drought-affected households.

A donation of $60 will provide one family with a single food package sustaining households for a period of one month. A donation of $100 ensures a family receives clean water. For $160, you can support a family with food and water to support their dire needs for an entire month.

Your support can help save lives.
