Somalia is one of the poorest countries in the world.
The two decade long conflict has left the East African country devastated. Somalia continues to experience one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world.
About 1.1 million Somalis are internally displaced.
Nearly 1 million are refugees in neighboring Kenya, Ethopia and Yemen.
Many do not have a place to call home, many families have been torn apart.
Children and women often suffer sexual violence due to gross insecurity.
Recent cases of outbreak of diseases like Polio have been reported.
Although some progress has been made in recent years, so much more needs to be done for the Somalis.
Some charities have been helping for many years now. You can also help by donating to some of these charities.
