The civil insecurity and the conflict in Mogadishu has resulted in large numbers of IDPs fleeing and settling in Afgoye.The IDPs settled in Afgoye has problems of accessing health and Nutrition services among other problems. An already difficult and serious problem affecting the population has been aggravated by the ongoing drought and harsh restriction imposed by the local authorities which saw many of the actors in Afgoye pulling out. FSNAU Nutrition post Deyr 2010/11 analysis has revealed a sustained critical phase for the IDPs in Afgoye which also indicating GAM rates ranging between 15 to 19.4% and SAM rates ranging between 2.0 to 5.5 %). In addition outbreaks of infectious diseases such as cholera, and diarrhea have resulted in the deterioration of the precarious malnutrition levels.

The failure of deyr rainfall of 2009 / 2010 season in many areas in the region has resulted in poor harvest, loss of animals, low milk production, increased debt burden due to low prices for animals and increased water purchasing costs.

This project aims to tackle some of the problems mentioned above in order to contribute towards the overall aim of improving access to nutrition services particularly for vulnerable populations such as IDPs and female headed house hold to the increasing numbers of people displaced by the conflict and the devastating impact of drought.

With funding support from HRF/UNOCHA,SOYDA has been providing basic health services to the IDP population in Afgoye. The project involved the provision of consultation and basic treatment and prevention services. This project plans to integrate the proposed nutrition action to the existing and ongoing health projects.

In Galgadud there are 253,000 people in AFLC while 131,000 are in HE of whom 25,000 are pastoral destitute. Due to the drought, already some 50,000 Somalis have been displaced within the country.

CHF-DMA-0489-189ER “Humanitarian response for the treatment and prevention of severe and moderate malnutrition in Lower Shabelle and Bay regions”- 176,770$

The nutrition situation in Lower Shabelle is one of the worst of all Somalia where severe malnutrition rate has reached 50% with the highest death rates exceeding six deaths in 10,000 per day. Famine has been declared in Lower Shabelle and parts of Bakool in southern Somalia. The nutrition situation is aggravated by the insecurity and the poor access of humanitarian interventions in many parts of the region. The absence of two rainy seasons and poor humanitarian access in many parts of the region has caused a sharp decline of food production and increase of food prices.

In this project, SWISSO is planning to implement OTP and SFP operations at 6 nutrition sites (2 TSFPs/OTPs in Merka district; 1 TSFP/OTP in Qoryoley district; 1 TSFP/OTP in Kurtunwarey district; and 2 TSFP/OTP in Baidoa). SWISSO is supporting 76 health staff working nutrition sites including nurses, nutrition screeners, vaccinators and volunteers by providing incentives, technical and logistic assistants, capacity building as well as monitoring and evaluation. Each OTP/TSFP site is operational 5 days a week, screening and admitting severely and moderately malnourished children under 5 years of age, and treats malnourished pregnant and lactating women. 

With urgent need in Abduwak, the project aims to carry out an immediate and life-saving nutrition intervention. The supplementary feeding programme aims to prevent and address the main causes of morbidity and mortality, through improved nutrition practices and services for maternal, new-born and child health.  Activity will include systematic screening, referral and treatment of Moderate Acute Malnourished children under 5 and PLWs through a network of 18 SFP sites.
