    The United States Agency for Development (USAID) paid a visit to internally displaced people (IDPs) in Baidoa, the interim administrative capital of South West State, on Tuesday.

    The delegation’s visit was intended to assess and evaluate the humanitarian situation in the camps.

    The officials were led by Ted Lawrence, the Acting Mission Director for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Somalia.

    The delegation also included representatives from the US Embassy in Mogadishu.

    The visiting delegation met with other international partners working in camps to provide long-term solutions to internally displaced people (IDPs).

    In a statement, the agency stated that it is giving humanitarian assistance to persons in need in the camps in order to ease their suffering.

    Baidoa is home to around 650k IDPs who have been displaced by natural disasters such as the recent El Nino floods that has devastated the country.

    The town is one of the locations hardest hit by the floods, which have triggered a major humanitarian disaster.
