In 2022, Somalia once again found itself on the cusp of famine, having suffered its most prolonged and severe drought in 40 years. This left nearly half the country’s population grappling with hunger and malnutrition, further exacerbated by sky-rocketing prices of commodities.
In the face of these challenges, with our partners, we mobilised resources and support to meet the immediate humanitarian needs of the most vulnerable children and their families, including continuing our resilience building programmes. Thanks to this, World Vision reached over one million children– stretching our resources to those even in inaccessible locations, to address vulnerabilities created by hunger, conflict, and other challenges.
Some key highlights of the report:
- Read a thank you note from our Country Program Director
- See a quick overview of our impact in figures including our impact per sector
- Meet our frontline staff, who are our hands, feet and ears on the ground daily impacting the lives of children
- Read about our efforts to fight TB in Somalia, as well as our resilience building work through SoMReP
- Read the story of baby Hamdi, who went from strength to strength after suffering severe malnutrition
- Read about our celebrated Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR), where we are working with communities to restore degraded lands
None of the accomplishments captured in this report would have been possible without the collective generosity of all those who support the work of World Vision.
