The humanitarian situation throughout Somalia remains critical due to the ongoing impacts of drought, displacement and conflict. Acute food insecurity is highly prevalent among populations who have experienced loss of livestock during the 2016-2017 drought, flooding during April-June 2018 and forced displacement due to a combination of conflict and natural hazards. Destruction caused by severe flooding, in addition to the continued drought and conflict has forced many people to leave their original towns and villages and seek refuge from neighboring cities. Approximately 138,000 IDPs reside in the Kahda district of Mogadishu where services available to IDPs are extremely scarce. With a weak government currently in place in Somalia, in addition to the unavailability of humanitarian agencies in many affected areas, the needs of those affected has not been adequately met. In response to this crisis, IDRF has partnered with the Organization for Somalis’ Protection and Development (OSPAD) in Somalia to implement a two month long emergency food distribution in the Kahda, Banadir region of Somalia. The goal of this project is to save the lives of 1,250 drought and flood affected households (7,500 persons).
