Summary

Drought and famine have wreaked havoc on the Somali people, especially young children. UNICEF predicts that by the end of 2017, a total of 1.4 million children under the age of 5 will suffer from acute malnutrition in Somalia, and 6.2 million people are currently in need of humanitarian assistance. Malnourished children are more vulnerable to die from diseases like cholera and measles which have spread through Somalia. There have been 32,000 cases of cholera and more than 5,600 cases of measles reported in 2017 alone. The drought has also displaced more than 615,000 people from their homes. All donations going to Somalia contribute to providing food and safe drinking water to those affected most by the famine.

Action Plan

Our mission is to provide food and safe drinking water to malnourished children and their families.

Challenges

  • Extreme drought
  • Cholera
  • Malnourishment
  • Contaminated food and water

Ongoing Presence

Providing food and safe drinking water for malnourished Somali children and their families is the beginning of the help and care we hope to provide for Somalia in the future.
