Southwest CEO Calls for Action to Aid Cyclone Ialy Relief Efforts

President Abdiaziz Hassan Mohamed from the Southwest regional state paid a visit to the headquarters of the Somali Disaster Management Agency (SoDMA) in Mogadishu on Tuesday. This visit came after the agency issued a warning about the approaching Tropical Cyclone Ialy in the southwestern and southern areas.

During his visit, the regional leader held discussions with the agency’s Commissioner, Mohamud Moalim Abdulle, about the humanitarian efforts being made and the potential impact that Cyclone Laly could have on specific regions.

The President commended the agency for their hard work and stressed the importance of providing support for their relief operations, especially since the Southwest state is expected to be affected by the cyclone.

Somalia has been facing challenges due to heavy rains and flash floods since the beginning of the year. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported that as of May 14, approximately 225,760 individuals have been impacted by the heavy rains and flooding during the Gu season (April to June), with nearly 38,730 people being displaced or relocated.
