Somali opposition alliance donates $200,000 to flood victims

Somali opposition political parties under the Forum for National Parties on 5 November donated $200,000 in support of flood-affected victims in the country.

The parties said the funds were meant to support humanitarian aid efforts in Beledweyne, Bardale and other areas affected by the floods.

The coalition also declared the establishment of two special teams that will work to coordinate the assistance efforts.

Another opposition party, Wadajir, started water trucking and provided 500 mosquito nets as part of relief efforts on 2 November.

The flooding mainly caused by river Shabelle affected several regions, namely Hiran, Middle Shabelle, Gedo, Bay, and parts of Lower Juba regions.

The federal government of Somalia in coordination with international relief agencies had also delivered aid to affected citizens in the past week.
