BORAMA — Poor rains in the two Somaliland regions of Awdal and Salal has led to shortages in food, prompting local elders and community leaders to appeal for aid.
They stressed that the Lughaya and east Gargara districts are in need of an emergency appeal due to severe drought.
Sultan Ibrahim Jama Samar made the passionate appeal in a meeting they held yesterday underpinning the fact that for the last three years no drop of rain fell in this part of the country.
They invited and called upon government officials and local members of parliament from both regions to attend a proposed meeting to addressing issues on the 14th of June this month at Borama. They underscored in unison the graveness of the matter hence gave a vivid picture of the dire needs of the residents.
