Don’t forget Djibouti in Horn of Africa crisis


LONDON (AlertNet) – Tiny Djibouti is in the grip of its fourth year of drought, food prices have soared and herders have lost most of their animals, theGuardian newspaper reported.

“The country’s needs are very urgent, although not on the same scale as those of its neighbours,” Katherine Roux, who was in Djibouti just over a week ago for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, said in the report.

Here’s a map showing Djibouti’s worst-affected areas, from the Famine Early Warning System. Hunger is worst among the urban poor and among 120,000 pastoralists living near the country’s borders with Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea.

The country of less than a million people is also hosting thousands of refugees from Somalia.
