Somali farmers feeding their countrymen againListen /

It's a major breakthrough for the farmers, especially coming from an area that faced severe famine less than three years ago.
Four million people in Somalia experienced severe food shortages in 2011, as the country suffered the worst drought to affect the East African region in 60 years.
