CHF-DMA-0489-160ER “Emergency Food Security Response Project for Belet Xaawo Town”- 437,687.86$

Belet Xaawo has been the epicenter of the ongoing effort by TFG forces and Al-Shabaab since mid March 2011. The conflict has displaced entire population of the town and most of the people took shelter in Mandera-Kenya. The population of Belet Xaawo district is estimated to be 75,826 people (WHO Gedo Polio Project). The population in the town is estimated around 49,288 persons. The project will target 46% of the population in the town which is 22,860 people. Belet Xaawo is an urban town where people depend on market purchases which has now been disrupted. The conflict has disrupted local livelihood system and the situation was further aggravated by the restriction on commercial traffic imposed by Al-shabaab to the parts of Gedo region controlled by the TFG and allied forces which led to sharp increase of prices of essential commodities. The essential food commodity prices have increased an average rate of 115% and the available food in the market is coming from Kenya and Ethiopia which is more expensive and beyond reach of the people.

A combination of limited access to income source and high food prices meant that the poor households struggled to meet their basic food and non-food needs. There is an urgent need to provide emergency response to support affected population by providing immediate means to meet food and other basic needs of the most vulnerable population. For the project target households, each person will receive daily for 167gm of rice, 100gm of wheat flour, 100gm of beans, 30gm of sugar and 30ml of oil.

 

CHF-DMA-0489-165ER “Emergency Food Support for Persons in Humanitarian Crisis in Dolow and Garbaharey Districts,Gedo Region, Somalia”- 500,000$

Deyr 2010 crop failure and reduced livestock production due to drought has forced population to rely on market purchase. Income for crop & livestock based livelihood groups has declined due to drought, while food prices have escalated. Urban poor compete with drought affected rural population & IDPs for few job opportunities and social support. Use of erosive coping strategies is on rise. Women are primary food producers & responsible for feeding their families are most affected.

This project targets 2,600 vulnerable households, providing them with vouchers to access food that is readily available from the markets. Target households are estimated to be meeting 35-45% of their food needs. Since markets are functional, project will provide selected families a serialized food voucher of USD 50/month for 3 months to be redeemed at selected shops. Voucher provides cereals -maize/sorghum, beans, vegetable oil & sugar. Food types have been discussed with beneficiaries. Monthly food ration will provide about 60% of minimum food basket (May 2011 FSNAU Gedo food basket estimate) complementing own sources. Assistance covers critical period as farmers wait for Gu crop to mature, and pastoralists wait for Deyr rains expected from October.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

CHF-DMA-0489-166ER “Provision of Emergency Food for Conflict and Drought-Affected Population in L. Juba” – 245,779$

The Juba areas have borne the brunt of tremendous shocks that include drought, conflict and disease outbreaks for the last few years. This has cumulatively depleted livelihood assets and weakened the peoples resilience. The recent drought whose effects are still being felt was another blow to the pastoral communities who lost most of their animals. Consequently, the communities are facing poor access to food, high rates of malnutrition of GAM, 30.7% and SAM, 7.8% (FSNAU Post Deyr 2010 Assessment) and rising prices basic food and non-food commodities, eg, maize-62%, cow peas-100% and camel milk-130% just between Dec 2010 and March 2011 (AFREC and Partners Joint Drought Assessment, April 2011).

Through this project AFREC will provide emergency food supplies to the most-affected families including the IDPs and host community families that lost all or most of their animals, elderly and those with malnourished children to save lives and avert total disposal of assets.    

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-167ER “Emergency Life Saving Support to Drought and Conflict Affected Populations in Buurdhuubo”- 485,582$

The nutrition situation in Gedo region is Very Critical across all the livelihood zones. This is attributed to limited food access due to the impact of the drought on crop and livestock production; disrupted humanitarian activities affecting delivery of health and nutrition services; high morbidity and poor health seeking behaviors; limited access to safe water, sanitation and health facilities and poor infant and young child feeding.

The project is going to target 1200 (7200 persons) most vulnerable households in Buurdhuubo town and its vicinity. The rational of this project is based on the identified needs of the affected people in terms of access to food and fuel for irrigation. Therefore, this project is going to stabilize the food security and nutrition situation of the target affected communities in term accessing food at household level and subsequent food production occasioned by the resumption of irrigation with help of the fuel provided by the project. As shown by its objectives the project will address food security and nutrition problems facing the target vulnerable households. It is observed that there is no any other humanitarian intervention aiming to cover the proposed humanitarian need.

CHF-DMA-0489-168ER “Live saving emergency intervention for drought and conflict affected poor households through food vouchers distribution in Luq district”- 479,880.50$

The two successive rains Deyr 2010/2011 and the following Gu 2011 failed in Gedo region . The conflict between Al-shabab and TFG in Gedo is felt by the civil in a different way from the warring groups. The impact of these rain failures and conflict is compromising the lives of many  people in Luq district of Gedo region and surrounding districts. Farming activities in the agro-pastoral areas potential for stable food production has been abandoned for 2 seasons due to lack or poor rainfalls. Livestock body condition continued to emaciate, lost monetary value and finally started dying in huge numbers especially cattle. Access to food and other income for drought affected people has been ruined by both drought and Al-shabab blockage, the price of food has risen 53% in all southern Somalia, and therefore the cost of minimum basket has changed very dramatically. In addition Huge number of people has been displaced from the neighboring districts of Bay and Bakool to Luq.

With this project, ADA aims to enhance protection of lives of drought and conflict affected poor households through food vouchers distribution in Luq district.

                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-169ER “Emergency life saving food voucher response to IDPs and host communities in Ceel Waaq district of Gedo Region” – 500,000$

Gedo region was named as one of the most critically affected following the failure of Gu 2011 rainfall. The continuing drought and the ongoing fighting between Al shabaab and pro-TFG forces in Gedo region has led to displacement of over 2,000 households.  The displaced persons are fleeing to Ceel Waaq district and are temporarily camping around Ceel Waaq town, where they are living under demeaning conditions. In addition, a significant number of host communities households in the district, majority of whom are pastoralists, have lost their source of livelihood and income particularly livestock due to the current drought and conflict. This has left them financially vulnerable and without food access.

NCA proposes an emergency food voucher response targeting 1,830 households among the IDPs around Elwak town and the host communities. The proposed intervention will target seven locations and is expected to be implemented over five months period. Currently, NCA is implementing two projects in Gedo region: Firstly, an emergency response to the drought affected population in Gedo and South Mudug regions of Somalia. Secondly, a long term rehabilitation and development assistance in the seven districts of Gedo region. These two programs are complimentary with the proposed project.               

                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-172ER “Emergency Food Security Support for Vulnerable Drought and Conflict affected Households in Bardera District.”- 500,000$

The “Deyr” short rains of 2010/2011 and the 2011 “Gu” long rains have failed, resulting in a prolonged drought affecting South Central Somalia, including Gedo Region. Large numbers of drought affected people from Bay and Middle Juba Regions have migrated to Bardera in the last 3-4 months. There are over 1,450 recently arrived drought and conflict affected IDPs in Bardera who have very few coping strategies and are in a state of severe food security crisis.

A significant increase in the cost of basic food commodities in Bardera has severely affected the food security of IDPs and agro-pastoral HHs. These HHs have impaired their coping capacities because of the prolonged drought and displacement and require immediate food aid assistance. SADO and Solidarity International have ongoing WASH and Livelihoods programs in the Bardera area, but the planned programs are not directly orientated or suited to addressing the immediate needs of newly arrived IDP’s and extremely vulnerable host community households in the current food security crisis. Both organisations are implementing limited NFI distributions, cash-for-work and food-for-work activities (focused on water catchments rehabilitation and latrines construction), but there is a need to scale up the direct support for most vulnerable households that are least prepared to absorb the increased household food costs.

With this project, SADO aims to provide immediate food security assistance to 1790 drought and conflict affected agro-pastoral IDPs and urban poor households in Bardera through food vouchers distribution.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-174ER “Emergency food relief through vouchers in Lower Shabelle - Afghoye corridor”- 499,278.40$

Lower Shabelle has officially been declared a famine area. People move from Mogadishu and at the same time people move from other areas towards towns an cities. They are in need of food since their livelihood is currently non existing. Due to the drought, the main basis of the rural people’s livelihood, i.e. cattle and agriculture, has been hit hard. Large numbers of livestock, sometimes up to more than 80% of one families holding, have died and the lack of rain made the agriculture practically nonexistent for at least season. The area of Afghoye has low river levels and since they are depending on gravity irrigation this limits the irrigation as well. This has led to an acute shortage in food on top of the water situation. The area is also housing a large influx of refugees trying to escape to Mogadishu that are held up by AlShabab, who prevents them from continuing. Since the malnutrition situation seems rapidly to get worse, food intervention is badly needed.

Wocca plans to provide food to 2800 destitute households (16800 individuals) by giving 80 kg of maize per family per month, 5 kg of sugar, 4 l of oil and 6 kg of pulses per month per family. This should address the direct food need as well as cover any nutrition imbalance by getting only a certain type of food. The pulses will be kidney beans and the oil will be fortified with vitamin A.               

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-175ER “Emergency Food Support for Drought Affected Communities in Qansaxdheere, Bay Region”- 499,995.50$

The humanitarian crisis in Somalia is deepened drastically in the last months of 2011. The situation is more critical in Bay region which has become the epicenter of the current crisis affecting the Southern regions. Qansaxdheere district is one of the districts critically affected by the current situation. Due to rain failure, the district experienced failure of two major harvests (January and August). This has led to low supply of cereals in the market pushing prices out of reach for the most vulnerable. Food prices have swelled reducing access. Food reserves have been emptied during the three years of poor harvest.

Due to the desperate situation in the Qansaxdheere, hundreds of families, mainly the agro-pastoralists, are desperately fleeing to refugee camps in the neighbouring countries of Kenya and Ethiopia to get access to assistance.

The intervention proposes to urgently enhance access to food for 1790 destitute households in Qansaxdheere and the surrounding villages.

 

CHF-DMA-0489-176ER “Support to drought affected displaced populations through the improved access to food in Banadir”- 500,000$

The number of people in crisis in Somalia is now 2.85 million, up from 2.4 million reported in January (19 % increase). The overwhelming majority of this population (61%) is in the South, where there is extremely limited food assistance due to insecurity. Poor farmers in the Lower Shabelle and Bay regions are joining the numbers of people in crisis due to a very poor Gu harvest outlook, aggravated by lack of carryover stocks, limited job opportunities and the record high cereal prices. For the same reasons, urban populations across the country are also facing the food security crisis.

According to a GAP analysis 607,876 untargeted people in Banadir Region are in crisis in 2011, a 20% increase from 2010. In order to protect livelihood assets during this sensitive period, assistance to access food is considered necessary.NRC participated in the inter-agency assessment of Mogadishu led by UN OCHA.    NRC also consulted Concern World Wide, Save the Children, WFP and Oxfam.       

With this project, NRC aims to increase access to food to 900 households in Banadir region.            

                                                                                                                            

CHF-DMA-0489-177ER “Emergency Food  Support for Persons in Humanitarian Crisis in Dinsor and Qansadhere  Districts, Bay Region, Somalia”- 500,000$

FSNAU estimates that 221,000 people within the rural (140,000), urban and IDPs (81,000) in Bay region are in humanitarian crisis. The crisis is driven by failed 2010 Deyr rains, harsh Jilaal and poor Gu 2011 rains. Labor opportunities for income are limited, as farming activities have reduced, affecting women who are pillars in providing food for the families. Malnutrition has deteriorated to very critical such that one in four children is affected.

This project targets 2170 vulnerable households, providing them with vouchers to access food that is available from the local markets. Project targets population in food crisis across the agro pastoral livelihoods in Dinsor and Qansadheere districts of Bay region. Women are primary food producers & responsible for feeding their families are most affected and will be prioritized during registration of beneficiaries. Target households are expected to be meeting 20-30% of their food needs. Since markets are functional, the project will provide selected families a serialized food voucher of USD 61/month for 3 months to be redeemed at selected shops.

COOPI is implementing the following activities to improve access to basic needs and services for the vulnerable pastoralists, agro-pastoralist households in Dinsor and Qansadheere districts. The proposed activities build on on-going activities and complement the current initiatives to address food needs that have escalated due to persistent drought.                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-178ER “Emergency Provision of food basket Through Voucher System in Ceel-Waaq District, Gedo”- 360,690$

A prolonged drought and high food prices in the larger horn of Africa and particularly Ceel Waaq district of Gedo region of Somalia has left a poor Pastorals/IDPs population.  During the drought, all the 14 shallow wells in the area dried up, the main source of water for the pastorals and their livestock. Several factors in the area have prevented the population from adjusting to normal lifestyle. First, the Ceel Waq population depends on livestock and small businesses for livelihoods. Most of the livestock have died during the drought and rains are yet to resume normally. This means the population has lost their main source of livelihood when the livestock perished. Things are made worse by the fact that Ceel Waaq district has no river passing through it. This community are not riverine or agro-pastoral this is poor pastoral and IDPs only. This makes it impossible to cultivate any crops to feed the people. Secondly, from October 2010, a vicious war erupted between the transitional Federal Government and the al Shabaab who used to control the area. The al Shabaab were expelled but have made the area inaccessible from the coastline, the Kismayu and Mogadishu ports from where food stuffs and basic commodities reach the population in Somalia. Without access to trading commodities, the concerned traders have been left destitute and many roadblocks mounted by AL-SHABAB also caused high food prices and shortage of commodity this district.  

The project will increase access to food for 4,433 poor pastoral household and IDPs households.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-183ER “Emergency  Food intervention through food for voucher for 987 most vulnerable and needy  IDPs and host community households (5922 people) in five locations in Tiyeglow District, Bakool, along and within transitory routes to Mogadishu, Dolow and Dadaab Kenya.”- 147,517$

The drought-stricken populations in Tiyeglow District, Bakol region, are in a humanitarian crisis due to crop failure, loss of livelihood assets. July FSNAU 2011 assessment ascertains high loss of assets, livelihoods such as livestock, crop failure, food and water scarcity and high prices. Current emergency scenario has witnessed loss of both human and animal lives due to starvation, lack of water, malnutrition, under-nutrition, opportunistic diseases and cases of AWDs. People are migrating from Tiyeglow to Mogadishu, Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya and Dolow in Ethiopia for assistance. Other locations  east of Tieyglow such as Dhanawe and Mada need urgent assistance as they are  along the transit routes to Mogadishu, Dolow and Dadaab. Dhemon and Bioloyoley south of Tieyglow are concentrated with IDPs in Most vulnerable groups that are unable to move due to physical weakness. Malnutrition and under-nutrition levels are critical among children. Women and children are left behind by men during the exodus to Ethiopia and other areas. The Community-led post needs assessment priority selection agreed that food assistance through voucher is relevant to urgently reduce the negative impact of drought on human and animal lives, livelihoods, property, and family unit. 

Food voucher-based intervention shall enable the populations to access food and cooking oil available on local markets through food vendors while enhancing the resilience and led them to quick recovery from the shocks of complex emergency food and nutrition insecurity. ADRO will select human labor within the community for all-stakeholder project participation in mobilization; training, sensitization and implementation on the essence and practice of food voucher in cushioning the most affected populations.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-184ER “Emergency Life Saving Support to  Women and Children Displaced by Drought in Buurhakaba District, Bay Region”- 331,483.80$

Burhakaba is the most second populous district in Bay region. In 2005, the estimated population of Burhakba district was 145,495 (UNDP Somalia, 2010 Population Estimates). The population is 100% rain fall dependents and they are agro-pastoralists who in a normal good year used to produce enough own food for household consumption with carry over for next year. The rains of three consecutive seasons namely Gu 2010, Deyr 2010 and Gu 2011 failed utterly. According to FSNAU last situation update by June 2011, 85% of the total population in Bay region were in crisis. The people of Burhakaba district are now fleeing from their homes in mass due to starvation caused by natural and manmade disasters. This scenario has caused a complex humanitarian crisis, which saw many people dead in their villages while others hit the road in search of food leaving behind the weak.

The rational of this project lies in the statues of the Emergency Relief Fund (ERF), which is intended to save lives; hence, the lives of children and women, which are at stake in Burhakaba district. It is necessary to provide these people with food and water in order to save the lives of the remaining people in the target areas.  

 

 

CHF-DMA-0489-185ER “Support to drought affected displaced populations through the improved access to food in Lower Shabelle”- 827,722$

Severely reduced food access, acute malnutrition, and crude mortality rates indicate an ongoing famine in all areas of Lower Shabelle region. This famine represents the most serious food insecurity situation in the world today in terms of both scale and severity. The results of a nutrition survey conducted by FSNAU and partners in July 2011 indicate Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) rates of 40.6% in agro-pastoral zones and 28.7% in the riverine and Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) rates of 20.9% and 14.2% respectively. Population wide death rates above famine threshold (2/10,000/day) and under-5 death rates are higher than 4/10,000/day.

With this project, NRC aims to increase access to food to 1,946 drought affected households in Lower Shabelle region.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-188ER “Urgent Food Support for Chronic Food Insecure Communities in Baidoa”- 347,794$

Somalia is moving more rapidly than expected into a serious humanitarian crisis, with an estimated 3.2 million people both in urban and rural areas facing extreme poverty, according to humanitarian officials. Over the past six months, the number of people requiring emergency livelihood and humanitarian support has increased by 77%, which is 43% of the entire population in the country.

Baidoa district is facing a severe and increasingly acute drought which has affected the lives of the pastoral, agro-pastoral and poor urban communities. The drought and the combining factors have drastically reduced food production (cereals, milk and meat). Food prices have skyrocketed making absolutely unaffordable for the poor and the middle class. Homegrown cereals have double by 80% according to food prices data gathered from Baidoa main market. This has led subsequently led to an increase in the of food insecure populations in the district. According to an assessment conducted by Access-Aid, the situation in Baidoa district is extremely critical. Food assistance, water and health are the priority needs for the affected populations in the district. Visited households reported at least three death cases occurring in different villages due to starvation and lack of food. Many agro-pastoral villages have been deserted as water pans dried up. Many drought affected families have moved to the urban town of Baidoa seeking for assistance.

In an effort to protect lives, this planned intervention targets to enhance food access for 1,865 needy agro-pastoral and urban communities in Baidoa and the surrounding villages through 2 months for support. The project will also support urban communities and villages located at a distance of 13km around Baidoa town.                                                                                                                                                                                                        

 

CHF-DMA-0489-190ER “Emergency food aid to drought affected IDPs and host communities in Lower Shabelle region”- 317,741$

Due to current droughts, South Somalia has phased emergence humanitarian crisis and UN declared famine in South Somalia as acute malnutrition for children exceeded 30%. In Lower Shabelle region where SWISSO – Kalmo operates, the malnutrition rate reached 50%. There has been high number of IDPs moving into inside as well as outside Somalia looking for safe places where they can find food and water; many people have already reached the Somali capital Mogadishu, while many others have crossed the borders between Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia. However, the majority of affected communities are still remaining their original places inside Somalia where there is no humanitarian access.

In this project, SWISSO will provide food aid to 1500 families who care severely malnourished children registered at nutrition sites (5 nutrition sites) in Lower Shabelle region through voucher to improve the nutritional conditions of the poor mothers. Each family will receive: a package of food on monthly basis through food voucher for a period of 2 months; a food value of 93$ per months; and the following food items per month: 81kg of rise, 14.4 kg of pulses, 5.4 liters of cooking oil and 4.5 kg of sugar.                                                                                                                                                                                  

 

CHF-DMA-0489-191ER “Emergency Access to Food for Famine-Affected Agro-pastoralists in Bakool”- 348,526.60$

The overall food security situation in Bakool region has considerably deteriorated since post Gu 2010 due to the negative effects of poor rainfall performance. According to FSNAU reports, currently 158,546 in rural Bakool are in crisis and famine, with GAM rates as high as 51.7. The current crisis is driven by a combination of factors, including: poor rains resulting in crop failure, reduced labor demand, poor livestock conditions, and excess animal mortality. Additionally, local cereal prices across the whole south regions are far above average, more than 2-3 times of the 2010 prices and still continue to rise. As a consequence, the most vulnerable populations are unable to meet basic food needs and have very little capacity to cope with these food deficits.

GREDO and BWDN propose an emergency food voucher response targeting 1,854 households among the agro-pastoral communities and the extremely vulnerable IDPs in Xudur and Wajid districts of Bakool region. The proposed intervention will target seven locations and is expected to be implemented over a period of five months. The project will provide food vouchers valued at $81.70 every month for a period of 2 months.

 

CHF-DMA-0489-195ER “Emergency and Livelihood Support to both Drought Affected HH and IDPs in Belet Weyne Districts Hiran Region”- 218,320$

From 2008 up to now, the GU and Deyr rains in this area Belet Weyne district of Hiran region were erratic and insufficient resulting in tremendously decline in livestock and crop harvest. The FSNAU report highlights that the food security and nutritional situation of the Hiran region continue to be in a state of HE and AFLC with an early warning of further deterioration over the following months. The situation was worsened by the recurrent droughts and conflicts that resulted displacements, 8 villages have been affected by the conflict through displacement.

A survey has identified the major problems that affected the population are the food Shortage. With this, SAMRADO aims to provide food through the voucher to the most vulnerable households of the 14,772 affected population.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-197ER “Emergency Response to Save Lives and Livelihoods of Drought Affected Pastoral and Agri-pastoral Populations in Elberde and Rabdhurre Districts of Bakool region through Food Voucher System.”- 608,208$

Bakool is one of the regions in southern Somalia seriously affected by recurrent conflict and drought. Poor rains and drought in the region led to depletion of crops and livestock assets especially for the poorest households with no other sources of food and income. The entire population of Bakool region is currently facing Acute Food and Livelihood Crisis or Humanitarian Emergency. Without immediate humanitarian intervention, the situation in the region could develop into a humanitarian crisis of a large magnitude. There are limited permanent water sources, few saleable animals with no income from sale of livestock products and on farm employments making poor households access to food extremely difficult. Large-scale displacement and significant limitations on humanitarian access have further exacerbated the situation (Food Security and Nutrition Working Group-Drought-Horn and eactern Africa-July, 2011).

This JCC project will provide a Rapid Assistance Response to save Lives and Livelihoods of pastoral, Agropstoral and IDPs through Food Voucher System in these communities to stop further asset losses, displacement and social collapse.                                                                                                                                       

 

CHF-DMA-0489-199ER “Emergency food relief through vouchers in Balcad and Aden Yabal”- 446,145.60$

Middle Shabelle has officially been declared a famine area. Many people have moved to Mogadishu while they could, but a majority did not have the means. They are in need of food since their livelihood is currently non existing. Due to the drought, the main basis of the rural people’s livelihood, i.e. cattle and agriculture, has been hit hard. Large numbers of livestock, sometimes up to more than 80% of one familys holding, have died and the lack of rain made the agriculture practically nonexistent for at least season. Adale and Aden Yabal are traditionally no real agricultural areas so the people have to struggle till the livestock is getting back to normal. Since the malnutrition situation seems rapidly to get worse, food intervention is urgently needed

With this project, WOCCA aims to provide 2,900 households with 40kg of rice, 5 kg of sugar, 4 l of oil fortified with vitamin A and 6 kg of pulses (cowpeas) each month for 2 months. The most vulnerable people in the area are women with children as well as elderly men. These people are the first target of the interventions, since they are the ones who are most in need and at the same time especially women care for a lot of dependent children.

 

CHF-DMA-0489-200ER “Provision of food vouchers to the worst affected displaced persons  in 6 IDP camps  in  Baraawe, Lower Shabelle Region.”- 246,686$

Lower Shabelle Region has been experiencing significant influx of the displaced population from Southern regions of Somalia due to food crisis being experienced currently. There is high mortality rates amongst children under 5years  as well as increased malnutrition rates amongst children, pregnant and lactating women as well as the aged. The situation is exacerbated by food inaccessibility due to limited food products resulting unaffordable price, limited milk supply in the market as a good number of livestock have succumbed to drought. This crisis represents the most serious food insecurity situation in the world today, in terms of both scale and severity. Current humanitarian response is inadequate to meet emergency needs.

The project targets 5,100 displaced persons in 6 IDP camps in Lower Shabelle Region and aims to ensure food access within 3 months.
