I just returned from my field mission in southern Somalia, where I visited a number of people displaced by the prolonged drought.
In one of the settlement camps in the district of Doolow, I met Kin Mohammed, a mother of six children who had moved from northern Somalia. The drought claimed all of Kin's livestock. She now lives in a tiny, makeshift shelter with her five children. Three of her children are living with different disabilities, including two who are unable to walk.
Kin and her children travelled to the settlement camp to survive. I cannot even begin to imagine how difficult the journey must have been like. Kin had to raise about USD$200 from well-wishers for transport and largely depends on donations or asks her neighbours for food.
