A delegation from WFP visits IDP camps in Baidoa town, South West State to assess the living conditions of the people in the camp's

A delegation from World Food Programme WFP and officials drawn from Somalia’s South West State have today paid a visit to the Internally Displaced Persons IDPS camps located in Baidoa town.

The delegation assessed and examined the living conditions of the people living in the camps including new arrivals displaced by ongoing biting droughts which has wrecked havoc in the country.

Somalia is continuing to experience severe drought which has affected about 90 percent of its land and approximately a quarter of its 16 million population according to international non-profit organisations.

Among those hardly hit by the debilitating drought are women and children who are usually vulnerable to harsh climatic conditions and natural calamities.

This is even as spring rains continue to be reported in the Horn of Africa Nation which is reeling from decades of civil war which had gripped the Nation since the fall of President Siyad Barre regime in 1991.
