(ERGO) – Most callers to Radio Ergo’s feedback platform this week (28 July to 3 August 2022) spoke about the harsh impact of continued or worsening drought conditions with shortages of water and livestock fodder. The rise in prices of fuel and food was also a concern. Similar calls came from across the country, although there were large numbers from northern regions, especially Togdher and Sanag, and from Central Somalia. Several callers noted the increase in cutting trees to burn charcoal due to loss of other livelihoods. There were many requests for aid from government or aid agencies.
