HIRDA provides relief to cyclone hit Somalia

HIRDA provided relief to the IDPs in Galkaio after a cyclone hit the region Puntland, in the northern part of Somalia. HIRDA was able to donate hundreds of 5 kilogram bags of rice, canvas sheets to provide shelter and mosquito nets. The latter is required since malaria mosquito’s are attracted to the huge amount of water that is flooding now through the cyclone hit area. HIRDA is also trying to reach out to the other part of the affected areas in Puntland, Somalia. More than 300 people are feared dead following the massive storm and hundreds of thousands of livestock perished, according to Puntland authorities.
