The eastern Africa nation is home of the world’s largest refugee camp as more than 400,000 Somalis have fled their country, which is suffering from drought and fighting between warlords.

The United Nations has spent $1B for humanitarian relief for drought victims in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia and is looking for an additional $1.2B from members. The U.S. has earmarked $225M for drought assistances.

Under the PR pact inked by Peter Schechter on July 1, CLS&A is to receive 40 percent of its payment following “signing of the contract against a bank guarantee from a reputable bank for similar amount valid for the period of six months.”

CLS&A is charged with message development, research, media/policymaker/influencer outreach and cultivation of third parties in support of its client.
