Somalia has been suppressed by an ongoing civil war since 1991. Violence, insecurity, and natural disasters like drought threaten thousands of families. More than 1 million people have been forced to leave their homes.
World Vision has been responding to the immediate needs of children and families since 2008, providing lifesaving emergency relief, water, sanitation, health, food, education, income, and protection.
5 million face starvation in Somalia
Currently, millions of people face the threat of famine in Somalia and hundreds of thousands of children are at risk of death. Some 320,000 children under age 5 are acutely malnourished, and 50,000 of them are so severely malnourished they risk dying without emergency intervention.
World Vision is responding and hopes to support 530,000 of the most severely affected people by providing these life-saving essentials:
- Nutritious food
- Health, nutrition and livelihoods programs
- Shelter and other household items
- Water, sanitation and hygiene programs
