Gift of the Givers deliver relief aid to Somalia

Humanitarian group Gift of the Givers is currently en-route to Somalia to deliver essential relief aid to the region.

Millions are said to be starving as the Horn of Africa battles its worst famine and drought in decades.

The United Nations and World Food Programme established emergency medical and food centres across the region.

South African doctors and dieticians travelling to Somalia said they are prepared to deal with severe cases of malnutrition.

The team will be stationed in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu and will travel to refugee camps in the region.

Thousands of Somalis have reportedly fled the country.

Everyone partaking in the relief mission has prepared for a week long stay.
