Like 750 000 other Somalis, Sadia and her neighbours were displaced by the severe drought that is affecting the Horn of Africa region. She was heavily pregnant when they decided to leave their village on foot for fear of starvation. In Dolow, a Somali town on the border with Ethiopia, she has found shelter in a camp for displaced people and receives food assistance from the World Food Programme (WFP) thanks to EU Humanitarian funds.
