The Drought Continues in the HOA!
by:

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports evaluating the first half of the year 2011, revealed that at least one out of three Somali children is malnourished in many parts in southern Somalia. This article is a continuation to an article at the HOA Political Scene 49 here.

Three out of five Somali children arrived in the refugee camps in Ethiopia from southern Somalia are malnourished, as well. Records of the death toll amongst the malnourished Somali children in the therapeutic centres in Kenya revealed that the numbers of children who died in the first quarter of 2011 have increased compared to the last year.

Al Shabaab controls the south and the sufferance of the people escalates to no limit. The children die continuously and the national conscience is far from feeling the Somali pain, while the civilians continue to withstand the worst of the fighting.

WHO reports in last May indicate that almost 1,590 Somalis, half of them were chidren filled the three main hospitals in Mogadishu and the percentage of the children affected increased from 3.5 percent in April to 46 percent in May.

The intensive fighting, especially on one the most populous areas in the market (souq Baakara) in Mogadishu resulted in the increase of the numbers of affected people. WHO says the main cause of death among the Somali children below the age of five are chest injuries, burns and internal haemorrhages caused by blast injuries, shrapnel and bullets.
