22.9 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance in the Horn of Africa and Great Lakes region owing to a three-year drought.
Women and girls are bearing the brunt of this crisis - and it's fast becoming the worst humanitarian crisis in recent history. Nimo, a mother of three in Somaliland, is one of many women taking drastic steps to save their families from starvation as famine looms in the Horn of Africa. She walked for eight straight days from her home in search of water and sustenance for her family.
I breastfeed my six months old son, but he cannot get enough milk as I don’t have food.
In disasters like drought, women like Nimo shoulder the heaviest burden in caring for their families and communities. Despite this, the voices and needs of women are often ignored in humanitarian response.
