Explanation:

    • This has left more than 11 million people in desperate need.
    • The country is currently experiencing its worst drought in nearly 40 years.
    • A looming famine could leave more than 8 million people without enough food to eat by next summer.
    • Somalia has seen three decades of conflict, destabilizing communities.
    • Currently, it produces less than half the amount of food it did before its civil war began in the early 1990s.
