Abaaraha, which means ‘drought’ in Somali, is the first ever crisis mapping platform built for Somalia. Launched in March 2017, the platform provides relief responders with information that allows them to connect with drought victims so they can render aid faster and more effectively.

#MapSomalia is a crowdsourced mapping project aiming to put rural Somalia on the map.  We are adding huts, bridges, schools, hospitals, roads, buildings, villages and cities to OpenStreetMap with the help of local and international volunteers.
