The acute drought caused by El Nino, the insurrection of Al’Shabaab and the general insecurity in the country have contributed to an extreme situation of emergency and humanitarian crisis in Somalia. The combination of these conditions have forced over 1 million people to leave their homes. Besides the homeless, around 6 million Somalis live in extreme conditions without basic necessities in order to survive.
With the help of the Herrod Foundation, we have the opportunity to change the lives of 2.420 families, or 14.520 individuals. Of these 14.520, 8.000 are children, of which 4.000 are under five years. Within these kind of situations, children are the most vulnerable of all.
