On August 2011, a delegation from FAO traveled to Dhobley in southern Somalia, in one of the first high level UN visits to the small border town in three years. Dhobley, located in Afmadow district in Southern Somalia is among areas severely affected by the current drought. FAO's Chief of Emergency Operations Cristina Amaral and FAO Officer in Charge for Somalia, Luca Alinovi, were shocked at how the Dhobley population, about 6,000 people, was taking a devastating toll of drought. Drought was killed thousands of livestock, disrupting Dhobley's major economic activity. The fact-finding mission was followed by immediate plans to intervene into Dhobley to ease the suffering in the Somali border town. Filmed and produced by Frank Nyakairu, FAO Somalia.
