Responding to Somalia's Hunger Crisis - Situation Report #14
More than 800,000 people have been reached since World Vision's teams started responding to the hunger crisis in Somalia.
Still, there's more work to do. World Vision continues to be concerned that:
- More than 1.5 million children are expected to be malnourished by the end of the year
- 4 million people are in need of emergency food assistance
- 4.5 million people need clean water, hygiene and sanitation support
- More than 1 million people have been displaced
To respond, World Vision aims to provide more people with life-saving and life-changing assistance.
Due to the ongoing drought and conflict, World Vision Kenya is requesting an additional US $14 million to reach people who urgently need emergency assistance to access food, clean water, health care, nutrition, child protection, income and employment, shelter and education.
