Relief for Cyclone-Affected Awdal

£6,689 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 221 people in 12 months
Cyclone Sagar, the strongest storm ever recorded in the area, has devasted Somaliland's northwestern coastline, hitting Awdal region particularly hard. An estimated 2,000 families have been displaced, hundreds of farms have been destroyed, and many lives have been lost. The toll taken on livestock has also been extremely severe. This is a catastrophic natural disaster and these people need your help!

The Somaliland Mission to the UK is raising this money to reach those urgently in need. The money will go directly to those coordinating current relief efforts in the area, and will focus on the short term needs of those most affected.

UPDATE

Thank you so much to those who have already donated, we’ve already reached 40% of our target. We would like to update you all on how things are going on the ground.

Djibouti and UAE became the first countries to respond in the wake of Cyclone Sagar. Djibouti offered its military helicopters to rescue displaced residents, whereas the UAE Red Crescent sent a medical team and medicine to the people on the coastal region.

Many areas are still unreachable and are difficult to enter. The death toll has now reached 50 people and many people are missing and injured. One particularly sad story, a young boy lost both his parents and six of his siblings in the cyclone.

The major concerns in the region are food shortage, possible diseases and contamination of water sources from decaying animal remains, as 80% of livestock have been killed.

This is why your donation is so important and needed. Please keep spreading the word.

My name is Nimao Ahmed, I’m an intern at Somaliland Mission to the UK and am fundraising on their behalf. One of our colleagues will be going to Somaliland and delivering the money raised. We’ll collaborate with local teams who have access to the victims, to provide food and aid. Every cent raised will go directly to those in need.
