Washington: 27 July 2021 (TDI)

The United States of America is additionally funding $199 million as humanitarian aid for the Somalis, especially those impacted by food insecurity, violence, floods, droughts, desert locusts, and lately by the pandemic. This funding is made through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. Department of State, which will amount the total funding as humanitarian aid for Somalia, up to $408 million for Fiscal Year 2021.

This funding is aimed at helping about six million Somali people, the number inclusive of three million Somalian refugees, and 500,000 Somali refugees in Djibouti, Ethiopia, and Kenya. Specifically, it will cater to urgent needs such as food and nutrition assistance, safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene, shelter, protection, education, and healthcare. It will also target countering environmental, humanitarian, and conflict-related challenges.

Such significant funding makes the US the largest donor of humanitarian support to Somalia. The US urges the United Nations to attend to the critical situation in Somalia, the increasing need for humanitarian assistance there.
