Halimo fixed her gaze on the sky and prayed for rain that hadn’t come for months. She anxiously checked two-year-old Yareeyo’s fever. The child had been coughing for weeks, and the family was out of options.

Years of conflict and drought have left Somalia one of the world’s most fragile places. In this part of the country, there is no clinic or ambulance. There’s barely a road.

“The drought was killing our livestock. With no income and not enough food, my daughter’s condition was getting worse,” Halimo said.
Searching for a solution, she heard of an emergency program run by Action Against Hunger, one of the only humanitarian groups braving this dangerous terrain.
