Somalia is considered a failed nation, due to its social, political, and economic malfunction. Ccontinued conflict and political instability in the East African country has brought about the collapse of the country’s basic public health, education, water and agricultural systems. Although the country faces an unprecedented humanitarian crisis, armed groups carrying out attacks on humanitarian aid workers have caused many organizations to suspend their operations in the south of the country.

While hundreds of thousands of Somalis have fled the turmoil by going into exile in neighboring countries, another 1.5 million people remain internally displaced inside the country as they try to evade the violence.

Frequent and prolonged droughts have further weakened the country by limiting the population’s access to food stuffs and potable water.
