Humanitarian aid to Somalia by the Greek Caravan of Solidarity.
Humanitarian aid for 1,000 Somalian refugee families is being transported by the Caravan, which begins tomorrow to visit areas on the Kenya - Somalia border. Tens of thousands of families are stuck there because of the ongoing civil clashes and the deadly drought.
The situation in Somalia has been characterized by the United Nations as the worst human crisis during the last decade.
A delegation from the Caravan, who were already there, have purchased, from neighboring countries, items of basic necessity and have prepared
packages of food (rice, sugar, macaroni, beans, flour, powdered milk, etc.) for approximately 1,000 families. In addition, a quantity of medicines brought from Greece were also distributed.
The delegation has arranged for distribution of the human aid to the families of refugees on the Sunday and Wednesday (16-17 / 10/2011).
