Today from Hiiraan Online:
Norwegian charity says more aid needed for Somali refugee children
Sunday, June 24, 2012
The Norwegian Refugee Council is calling on the world to increase aid for Somali children displaced by conflict and famine.
Last summer the world was stunned with tens of thousands of Somali children starving to death. A severe drought had struck Somalia and East Africa, causing massive food shortages. Conflict within Somalia made the situation far worse by preventing aid from reaching the needy.
Thousands of children and their families were able to flee the worst hunger and conflict areas. Many of these "children of famine" found refuge in camps in Dadaab, Kenya.
A year later their plight in the refugee camps is largely silent to the world. The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) wants to change this by focusing on these children's needs. They have a chance to recover if the world gives them enough help.
