PUNTLAND: Teams from the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation have begun the distribution of emergency relief assistance to Somali families in villages in Puntland State, northeastern Somalia, as part of phase two of a campaign launched to assist those ravaged by drought in the region. 900 tonnes of food aid is being delivered to help recipients endure the hardships caused by the drought that has plagued their land and harmed farms and livestock.

This follows the Foundation’s provision of 824 tonnes of food items to around 30,000 people in the also affected area of Jubaland, as part of the campaign’s first phase.
