Somalia: Livestock Farmer Begins To Recover From Drought

Thanks to a reservoir created over the last year by a community in northern Somalia, there is now usually water for livestock such as these camels. Their owner, a nomad farmer, used to have 20 of the animals, but most of them died in the 2011 drought. The villagers who worked on building this community scheme were given food in exchange for their labour through WFP’s Food For Assets programme.
