“My wife died of hunger here… I became helpless”
Issack also lost four of his children to the 2011 famine. He then moved the rest of his family to Mogadishu to try and save them.
“All my livestock and crops were wiped out. […] People were weak… they were starving. We had no choice but to flee for our lives.”
In the longest drought Somalia has seen in 40 years, all families like Issack’s can do, is pray for rain this Ramadan. Your Zakat can be their lifeline, helping with much-needed food, water, medicine, and shelter. Dedicate it now to families like Issack’s.
