Somalia President Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud has arrived in London to co-host the Global Food Security Summit with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, the United Arab Emirates, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The summit, scheduled for Monday in London, will bring together government leaders, aid groups, scientists involved in global research initiatives, and climate and foodexperts. Somalia is begging for food to sell on the black market.
Most aid received Somalia’s government instead of giving the food to the Somali people, Hassan Sheikh and his cronies sell the food on the black market and make millions of dollars. The UK government should think twice before taxpayer money is given to Hassan Sheikh’s family empire.
According to the United Nations, the latest analysis indicates that between April and June 2023, approximately 6.6 million people in Somalia experienced high levels of acute food insecurity.
The UK International Development Minister, Andrew Mitchell, said, “Today we will launch the UK International Development White Paper, setting out our long-term vision for addressing critical global challenges, including preventing and treating child hunger, through new partnerships and sources of finance.
Up to £100 million in humanitarian funding is being released to countries worst hit by food insecurity, including Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan and Afghanistan, and to countries impacted by climate-related weather events, such as Malawi, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) said.
Floods caused by heavy rains that began in early October in Somalia resulted in the death of 50 people and displaced over half a million others, as reported by the country’s national disaster agency.
The Somalia Disaster Management Agency (SoDMA) stated that the torrential rains also triggered landslides and flash floods in other parts of Somalia, destroying crops and livestock.
