Across Somalia, the dought is forcing around 3,000 people a day to leave their homes.

People like Mahmoud are forced to pick up all they own, and move in search of water and food. His family have been on the move for four months, chasing the rains.

He told us: "This drought is slowly killing everything. First it swept away the land, then it swept away the animals. Soon it is going to sweep away people. People are sick with flu, diarrhea and measles. If they don’t get food, clean water and medicines, they will die like their animals."

We are trucking water to many of the affected communities in Somalia.

Baby Mohamud was delivered safely under supervision, thanks to UK aid. Without vital medical care for expectant mothers, childbirth can be life-threatening.

The world needs the kindness and compassion of the British public now more than ever. SHARE if you agree.

Before the war in Yemen, we met Shaqra. With little income, she and her husband were forced to beg neighbours for left-over food in order to feed their family. Now, after two years of conflict, food prices have rocketed, and millions more families live on the edge of starvation.

Yesterday and today we are remembering the millions of resilient mothers like Shaqra in Yemen who are caring for their children through this devastating crisis.
