March 2017 – Acute humanitarian needs remain high in Somalia due to ongoing conflict and insecurity, displacement, poor basic services, food insecurity, malnutrition, and climatic variability. In recent months, Al Shabaab has regained control of several towns in south and central Somalia, leading to new displacement and concerns over humanitarian access in these areas. More than six million people, including more than one million internally displaced persons, require humanitarian assistance. Several seasons of severe drought have led to the very real fear that the country could slide into famine in 2017. With GAC’s support, World Vision is providing health and nutrition, water and sanitation, and protection support to an estimated 140,000 people affected by drought and conflict, including internally displaced persons, returnees, and host community members. Project activities are focused in and around Baidoa, Bay Region, Somalia.
