Mary's Meals, a Scottish ngo provides aid to famine-hit Somalia. Children and families facing starvation in drought stricken Somalia are being offered a lifeline by Mary's Meals, which has stepped up its emergency response to the East Africa crisis. Mary's Meals teamed up with the African relief agency Gift of the Givers to provide around 900,000 meals for those affected by the famine in Somalia. The emergency response will see 100 tonnes of food aid delivered to Somalia's capital Mogadishu, where tens of thousands of people have fled to in search of food. In a sign of how desperate the famine has become, many Somalis have fled from rural areas to Mogadishu, a war zone where African Union forces have been battling the Al Shabab militants daily.
