The Thani Bin Abdullah Bin Thani Al-Thani Humanitarian Fund and global international NGO Save the Children launched a ground-breaking holistic programme in 2020 to deliver life-saving support to over 500,000 children in 6 of the 18 drought-affected areas of Somalia. The programme, which is ongoing across Somaliland, Puntland and the Southern States, is leveraging His Excellency Sheikh Thani bin Abdullah Al Thani’s generous $19.6 million in Zakat and Sadaqah funding to strengthen health services, provide therapeutic feeding and clean water and sanitation, as well as support families enduring the drought crisis through a cash transform platform.
