Médecins Sans Frontières locations in response to the crisis.

Over the past year, Somalia has experienced two consecutive poor rainy seasons, resulting in one of the driest years in decades in many pastoral zones. The impact of the drought has been exacerbated by high local cereal prices, excess livestock mortality, conflict and restricted humanitarian access in some areas. Large parts of Somalia have been ravaged by civil war for over twenty years, and people displaced have great difficulties accessing the few places where food aid and health care is extended.

Médecins Sans Frontières teams are fully stretched in various locations inside Somalia, as well as assisting exhausted refugees crossing Somalia’s borders into Ethiopia and Kenya.
