Boolo and her family joined her brother in a camp for internally displaced people in Mogadishu from lower Shabeellle.
Boolo was forced to relocate after the drought had dried up her stock and killed her livestock, eliminating her only sources of income.
Before settling in the camp, the family tried to earn a living farming other people's land in a small village 8 KM away, but the drought dried up their work and eventually, they had no other choice but to seek humanitarian assistance.
Boolo now works as a domestic worker, earning less than $3/day as she struggles to put food on the table for her family.
The situations in IDP camps in Mogadishu are dire - people like Boolo face every day without some of their most basic needs being met.
Your Zakat and Sadaqah can help provide life-saving food and clean water to families in desperate need, as well as contribute to sustainable solutions to lift families like Boloo's out of poverty.
