USAID will provide $4.4 million in aid to Somalia


USAID will provide $4.4 million in aid to Somalia, for projects to provide primary health care services and access to safe water, and to transport food and medicine.

USAID also announced it would provide $300,000 to improve the port of Berbera, which is a critical part of the region's infrastructure .

Somalia has 1.2 million people at risk from the drought, and the U.S. government is responding by providing $14.6 million in food aid.

These additional announcements bring total USAID non-food assistance to $22 million this fiscal year.

This is in addition to the $323.6 million in food aid the U.S. is sending to the Horn of Africa.

The U.S. Agency for International Development is the U.S. government agency that provides development and humanitarian assistance worldwide.
