Aid groups in Somalia used to give out food, but this proved ineffective. So last year they started giving internally displaced people cards or vouchers loaded up with cash instead.
In Somalia, the UN says almost three million people are at risk of drought and malnutrition.
Many of them have had to leave their homes in search of water and food, but there isn't always enough.
As TRT World's Adesewa Josh reports, aid agencies are turning to cash to find ways around the problem.
