CHF-DMA-0489-161ER “Provision of Prepared Food Aid Meals to Conflict-Affected People in Mogadishu, Somalia”- 499,866$

Due to the overall chronic food insecurity, drought and conflict, the local population in Mogadishu including displaced civilians are facing an extreme shortage of food. This situation is exacerbated by lack of income opportunities for poor and middle-income households in Mogadishu due to the current instability that gravely affects their ability to purchase food and other essential items. It is clear from the current nutritional status of the Mogadishu civilians and IDPs that a reduction and/or disruption to the current level of access to food will accelerate the levels of acute malnutrition. The wetfeeding project aims to increase access to food for the most vulnerable households through the daily distribution of prepared meals.

This program is implemented through a partnership between WFP and DRC, with SAACID as an implementing partner of DRC. Specific responsibilities are assigned in the agreements between DRC and WFP and DRC and SAACID.

 

CHF-DMA-0489-171ER “Emergency Food Assistance as Life Saving Intervention to the Pastoral and the Agro Pastoral Destitude Households in Kismayo District of Lower Juba”- 87,660.50$

According to FSNAU analysis report of post Deyr 2010/2011, 9,000 people are in Acute Food and Livelihood Crisis while 6,000 people are in Humanitarian Emergency in Kismayo district. The food security situation in the pastoral and agro pastoral zones in Kismayo has deteriorated due to a combination of factors: reduced food availability, reduced purchasing power of the people, overstretched social support, poor transport infrastructure, civil insecurity and high vulnerability levels.

The pastoral and agro pastoral people in Kismayo try to respond to this shocks by employing extreme coping strategies with limited success  by burning and selling charcoal, eating wild fruits, labour migration and seeking support from relatives in form of gifts and loans.

This project will target 536 pastoral and agro pastoral destitute households (3217 people) who are in severe food insecurity situation. The project will support and provide temporary safety nets to 910 women, 480 men and 1,827 children who are the  most vulnerable in all the 10 project locations.

 

CHF-DMA-0489-173ER “Emergency Response for Drought-Affected People in Bulo Burto, Belet Weyne and Jalalaqsi Rural Villages Through Food Vouchers”- 241,495.98$

In Hiraan there is a massive immigration of pastoral communities into the main towns due to the biting drought and civil insecurity in Central regions of Somalia, thus warranting dire and urgent need for emergency food assistance human. Both the pastoralist and agro-pastoralist communities have been severely affected by drought which have resulted in death of massive number of livestock; the sole source of livelihood for some; hence loss of livelihoods. A population of 4,515 households in rural villages of Bulo Burto, Jalalaqsi and Belet Weyne districts of Hiraan region is in critical condition of food shortages at household-level.

With this project, Action Against Disaster (AADSOM) aims to Ensure 2360 households which are the most needy have adequate food items in a manner that will ensure their survival for the period of drought.           

                                                                                               

CHF-DMA-0489-182ER “Emergency Food Assistance for Famine Affected Agro-pastoralists in Wanlaweyn District of Lower Shabelle Region.”- 499,998$

There is a famine currently ongoing in Bakool and Lower Shebelle in southern regions. In Wanlaweyn district of Lower Shebelle, the situation is very critical and the agro-pastoral communities are the worst affected. The crisis in Wanlaweyn represents the most serious food insecurity situation ever in the history of the local people both in scale and severity. The situation is further complicated by the inadequate humanitarian response in the region to meet the urgently needed assistance. Due to the poor level of response, there is extremely high food insecurity facing the agro-pastoral families dropping further into extreme famine.

The presence of humanitarian agencies in Wanlaweyn is too poor and that there was limited response to the crisis. There is an urgent need to intervene in order to alleviate the food crisis facing thousands of families in Wanlaweyn. Access-Aid proposes an immediate food access for 1658 households (9948 persons) in Wanlaweyn district of Lower Shabelle.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

CHF-DMA-0489-187ER “Save Lives in Emergency Situation Through Provision of Food Assistance”- 637,828.94$

An assessment in Buale district showed that the people were living in bad shape in terms of their access to food for the households, and the drought had affected people to the extent that a large number of the households have exhausted their coping mechanisms while they have lost livelihood or livestock and/or plot of land in the town, particularly the poor subsistence farmers. RAWA plans to distribute food to the whole district. The beneficiaries will be assisted with food vouchers for two months from August 2011 to September 2011. The programme is expected to combine other programs such as provision of farm tools, seeds, water pumps and fuel though we shall also work together other organizations in the district for more closely working and coordination  purposes.
