Among some of the worst drought in Africa in the past 50 years Somali residents are finally about to receive some much needed aid in the form of airlifted food. All of Somalia and other nearby areas have been experiencing major food droughts through the past months and food supplies are virtually nonexistent so for many of the people in the area these food supplies are truly a gift that could not come at a better time.
The food supply will be coming from a variety of sources, though most of the money and donations came from the UN and the United States. The food will begin being transported into the area in the next two days and the food aid is expected to continue for as long as necessary to keep the population fed.
Currently many children and families are essentially starving due to the absolute lack of food. Thanks to the efforts of the UN and United States these people will finally be receiving the critical help they have so desperately needed for the past few months. Refugees from other areas will also be included in the aid program and the UN is currently working to expand the amount of aid they can provide as much as possible. As more donations and food begin to be available the UN will obviously increase how much is being flown into the drought stricken area although for now they will simply do what they can to help out.
