DROUGHT RESPONSE 2017

When Hundreds of new exhausted internally displaced people who fled from droughts in south regions have collapsed in the outskirts of Mogadishu and the humanitarian situation was worsening. Then SOYVDA lunched enormous campaign to make lifesavings, in a bid to response the humanitarian crisis.

As the humanitarian situation was worsening, Middle-aged university students, who united as Somalia Youth Volunteers for Development association (SOYVDA) stood up and lunched an enormous campaign towards responding the drought.

SOYVDA had able to collect over 2,200 $USD from house wives, pedestrians and villagers living in parts of the capital city of Mogadishu. We got this money within 10 days by moving from door-to-door, village-to-village.

Then Our first project was the drought emergency food aid where we able to facilitate and donate through our membership and the community 15 tonnes of dry food and over 1600 litres of cooking oil to 515 families in Garasbaleey and Kaxda Internally Displaced Camps in three phases, where the effects of drought were hardest hit.
