I want to raise funds to support livestock owned by familes suffering in the Somalia drought.
I intend to use funds raised to directly assist affected families in the drought affected areas surrounding Adaad In Somalia. I am currently doing volunteer nursing in Adaad Somalia with Iftiin Education and development. I have been shocked at the suffering I have witnessed. I have visited many familes in the countryside where the drought has devastated food for animals and humans alike. Livestock are dying and their survival is critical to a family's survival.
I am involved because I am a Somali New Zealander and a NZ registered nurse currently on leave from my job, doing volunteer nursing in my home country of Somalia. I want to direct what assistance I can get to help familes who are suffering from a very severe drought. The area where I am working is secure.
I want to raise funds to purchase immediate relief to family livestock. Prices are currently USD47 for 50 kg of sorghum. I will work with Iftiin NGO to ensure all food purchased is properly distributed to those most in need.
