Internally displaced women wait for food rations with their children, at a food distribution centre in the Dharkenley district of Mogadishu, on July 16, 2011. Thousands continue to arrive to the area as they flee severe droughts that have hit southern Somalia. Drought-hit Somalia is stretching relief workers to their limits and is now facing a fully-fledged humanitarian catastrophe, aid agencies warned.  "We are no longer talking about a humanitarian crisis or a humanitarian emergency... We are seeing this as a humanitarian catastrophe" said Jens Oppermann, the country director of Action Against Hunger ("Action Contre La Faim").

A U.N. agency is hosting an emergency meeting in Rome on Monday July 25, to mobilize action to fight famine in Somalia, Kenya and other drought-hit nations in East Africa, estimating that more than 11-million people need help in the drought-hit region.
