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 support from GAC, Save the Children Canada provides health and nutrition and water and sanitation support to an estimated 96,000 drought- and conflict-affected internally displaced persons (IDPs), returnees, and host community members around Mogadishu and Baidoa.
