Addis Ababa, January 25, 2021 (Walta) – Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and his delegation visited Qabribayah, in the Somali regional state, “which is one of many host communities in the Somali Regional State supporting drought-affected displaced persons.”

In a statement noted  on his Twitter account, the Prime Minister pledged that “in the interim, we will scale the provision of water trucks, food, animal feed, and essential medicines, while we accelerate the small dams projects we have embarked upon to support water management in lowland areas, as a pathway to circumventing future droughts.”

Somali region is one of the regions currently experiencing drought resulting in a severe shortage of water and the death of thousands of cattle in recent months alone.
