About

The project aims at addressing the high rate of acute malnutrition state as seen by the recent FSNAU post Deyr IDP assessment results. The projects proposes to intervene with treatment of both moderate and severe acute malnutrition. This will be done by setting up 3 TSFP/ OTP sites for treatment (2mobile and 1 static) covering the 10 IDPs in Kismayo. This will assist in integrating treatment of acute malnutrition and offer one stop service centers in treatment of acute malnutrition. It will also help to reduce the number of defaulters occasioned by referral of beneficiaries from either MAM to SAM treatment or vice versa. The project will also integrate some health and WASH activities in in form of education through nutrition health and hygiene promotion. The project will further integrate vaccination, through provision of both penta valine and measles vaccine, as a health activity. More integration will be done by working closely with other partners in the area who are implementing health or WASH activities, by referring beneficiaries and following them up to ensure they go for the required help. The project will also seek to provide the much needed micro nutrients to both children 6-59 months and PLWs.This is to provide vital micronutrients required by the body during this critical time in life , boost immunity , help prevent diseases and break the synergistic relationship between malnutrition and health. The capacity of project staff and community volunteers will be enhanced through training and supportive supervision. This will be a continuous process. The project will ensure as many community groups as possible are involved so as to improve sustainability. Willing men , husbands, grandmothers and other significant others will be involved so as to enhance behaviour change. The project will also provide mechanism for feedback so as to enhance project quality and ensure that the beneficiaries get their rights as required. This will however be done in a highly professional manner so as to protect the beneficiaries, Environmental protection will be key as proper solid waste management will be emphasized. Beneficiaries will be advised on disposal of used sachets from therapeutic spread. Gender will also be a key issues. Community groups and their contribution to the project and its success will be highly considered. Gender will be considered during staff recruitment, selection of CHWs, implementation of activities and evaluation. Coordination will be another key consideration. The project will seek to work with the nutrition cluster through the secretariat, members and observers. It will coordinate with UN agencies like UNICEF and WFP , especially in provision of supplies and sharing of information.
