This picture taken on July 18, 2012 shows Somali women sitting with their rations after receiving relief food during a distribution exercise at an IDP camp in Dollow, nothern Somalia. While famine was declared over in February, thousands have now fled to the Dollow region of southern Somalia, close to Ethiopia's border, a rare pocket of relative stability.
