The Federal Government of Somalia is giving humanitarian relief to families who have become stuck in sections of Jubaland State as a result of torrential rains that have created significant flooding.
Since October, hundreds of families in Somalia have been cut off from supplies or stranded by torrential rains and floods.
Humanitarians and officials have dispatched boats to administer life-saving aid and evacuate individuals who have become stuck. At least 28 boats are in operation in seven different sites.
As the flooding persists, more resources are needed to fulfil the mounting demands.
The Somali Disaster Management Agency is one of the organisations providing life-saving aid to flood victims in numerous parts of the country.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Somalia distributes aid to those impacted by flash floods and requests additional resources to assist those who have been trapped and cut off from other sectors of society owing to the heavy rainfall.
