Somalia: Puntland Storm Survivors Waiting for Help

Garowe — The survivors of a severe cyclonic storm that rammed into Somalia’s northeastern region of Puntland are desperate for food, medicines and clean water but, with so much anxiety and chaos in the hardest-hit areas the distribution is limited, Garowe Online reports.

Despite the efforts of Puntland government, few aid agencies on the ground and the neighbouring countries of Ethiopia and Djibouti, food remains scarce for many of the neediest survivors in Nugal region where storm with life-threatening flooding washed thousands of livestock into the Indian Ocean, leaving 350,000 households more destitute according to local authorities.
