Despite massive efforts that have helped improve the hunger situation in Somalia, more is needed. According to the Executive Director of the Word Food Programme , David Beasley- over 2.3 Million people in the Horn of Africa nation still need food assistance. He adds that the organisation needs 297 Million Dollars to alleviate the situation. Conflict and poor rains have been blamed for the current food shortage. Apart from distributing food, World Food Programme has also been issuing electronic cash vouchers for locals to diversify diets, as a way of improving nutrition.
