US Calls on Donors to Provide More Famine Aid to Somalia

 The Associated Press published on 29 January 2023 an article titled "US Urges Donors to Give Far More as Somalia Faces Famine" by Cara Anna.

US ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, made a surprise visit to Mogadishu on 29 January and used the occasion to call on donors to provide more famine relief.  Today, there are 2.7 million more people in need of food assistance than during Somalia's last famine in 2011.
