CHF-DMA-0489-033 "Humanitarian response for treatment and prevention of severe and moderate acute malnutrition" - 3,758,879$                                                                                 

Somalia remains a country burdened by insecurity, political instability and protection violations, economic hardship, natural disasters and food insecurity. The FSNAU, FEWSNET and partner post Deyr 09/10 assessments estimate that 3.2 million people, half of whom are children and of which 640,000 are under the age of five, are in a state of humanitarian emergency or acute food and livelihood crisis in Somalia. About 1.4 million people are internally displaced, mainly due to conflict. Despite some signs of improvement in the food security situation in the Central and Southern Zone (CSZ), IDPs and pastoralist and agro-pastoralist populations in the north are still in crisis. One of the three poorest countries in the world, conditions of extreme poverty and drought currently prevail throughout most parts of the country, with limited social services available and grave health, nutrition and protection risks experienced by the most vulnerable – especially women and children.For many children in Somalia, the combination of a lack of sustainable and safe water sources, repeated illness (especially diarrhoea), limited access to food and poor child-care practices has meant an increase in chronic and acute malnutrition.                                                                                                                          

Objective:  Children and women suffering from acute malnutrition receive quality treatment services

Main Outcomes:

  • 60% of acutely malnourished children and women are provided with curative nutrition services
  • Facilitated implementation of emergency and long-term strategies addressing malnutrition
