CHF-DMA-0489-198ER “Family Tracing and Reunification system for recently displaced and drought affected population in South Somalia.”- 114,855.50$

"The recent drought, which has caused dramatic food insecurity, together with the escalation of armed clashes, has led to massive displacement in many regions of South and Central Somalia (hosting over 1 million IDPs). Involuntary family separation is one of the likely consequences of mass displacement. Although there are no comprehensive data on the incidence of involuntary family division among displaced populations, there have been many reports on families having lost relatives (children, parents, etc.) during displacement, with Mogadishu having received more than 100,000 IDPs in the last two months, and Kenya and Ethiopia receiving thousands of Somali refugees weekly. Family tracing activities are considered to be a protection gap.

INTERSOS has conducted AGDM FGDs in three locations, targeting recently displaced IDPs in order to understand the phenomenon and has carried out a rapid assessment to collect additional data on the families involuntarily divided. This assessment was aimed to reveal the prevalence of involuntary family separations among IDPs.  No direct assistance and support have been provided to this target group, because of the lack of resources to assist them.

For the reasons stated above, this ERF proposal aims at allowing INTERSOS to pilot supportive mechanisms to facilitate family reunification of IDPs currently hosted in the Afgooye corridor, Bay, Banadir (el-Irfid/Balad corridor) and Middle Shabelle regions. The project will target vulnerable separated family members, including unaccompanied minors/females and other vulnerable persons.
