Shopping For Camel Meat In Northern Somalia
In Burao, northern Somalia, Lul Haybe uses $10 worth of WFP food vouchers to buy two kilograms of camel meat from a local meat vendor. “We are very satisfied now. The quality of the meat is good. I prefer fresh meat rather than canned fish,” she says. She will use the meat and food bought with her other WFP vouchers to feed the nine people in her family. “Camel meat lasts longer than other meat,” she says. Lul Haybe does not have a refrigerator, but will pay 1000 Somaliland Shillings (about 17 cents) to rent refrigerator space to keep the meat fresh.
