Global hunger continues to rise
Luuleey Hassan is from Diinsoor in Somalia, but has been displaced by drought to a camp in Mogadishu where she now lives in a small hut made of plastic sheeting.
She came to the camp in Mogadishu because the crops have failed for the last two years and the few animals her family owned had to be sold or died.
Luuleey is caring for her three young children on her own, as her husband had to stay behind in Diinsoor to protect the family home.
She and the others in this camp are just scraping by, but the supply of food they are receiving is precarious, and they hope other support will come before they become malnourished. Luuleey's family is just one of those that are benefiting from aid Human Appeal is able to provide due to the support of our donors.

The new Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) report has found that 821 million people are now hungry worldwide. That is one in every nine people, and over 150 million children are stunted, putting the health of hundreds of millions of children at risk.
Hunger has been on the rise over the past three years, returning to levels from a decade ago.
The annual UN report found that climate variability affecting rainfall patterns and agricultural seasons, and climate extremes such as droughts and floods, are among the key drivers behind the rise in hunger, together with conflict and economic slowdowns.
