10 Sadaqah Jariya Shares for Somalia

Somalia, renowned for its deep-rooted history and vibrant culture, is currently facing one of its most challenging water crises. Consecutive droughts have left the nation thirsty, triggering a series of issues, from dwindling food supplies to a drop in agricultural activities.

Somalia's Water Crisis

The water deficit in Somalia is not just about barren landscapes. It mirrors the intensifying hunger crisis that's holding the nation hostage. With farming paralyzed due to the water crisis, food shortages are becoming the norm. The severity of the situation has catapulted Somalia to the forefront of the International Rescue Committee’s Emergency Watch list. The reason? A potent mix of relentless droughts and the aftermath of decades of strife, spiraling into a severe food crisis.

For season after season, the skies have remained clear, devoid of the much-needed rains. Predictions for mid-2023 paint a grim picture, with a staggering 8 million people, almost half of Somalia's populace, on the brink of acute food insecurity. The specter of a looming famine is undeniable.

MAA's Increasing our efforts

MAA International is doubling down on its commitment to help those affected. We're implementing a project to construct a Solar-Powered Borehole in Gumeys village, Jowhar, Somalia.
