World Vision COVID 19 Response

COVID-19 Emergency Response Plan

“It's critical that the most vulnerable children and their families especially the displaced are protected from bearing the burden of coronavirus. The secondary impact on children during such an outbreak can include increased food insecurity, a greater risk of violence, interruption of essential services including formal and informal education and health services. Our response will focus on those vulnerable children and their families living in IDP settlements,” says Simon Nyabwengi, National Director, World Vision Somalia.

World Vision has been operational in Somalia since 1992. We have programmes in all the regions of the country.

We are dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice, promote development and resilience. Our goal is to enhance the resilient well-being of 2 Million Children and their communities in Somalia by 2020.

Food Security and Livelihood, Health and Nutrition, and Water and Sanitation have been the three major foci for Somalia. However, we have been strengthening our programming on Education, Shelter and Protection.

Innovating with partners in Somalia

Great partnerships and innovation are helping to create awareness and dissemination of information in Somalia. This allows us to address the lack of context-relevant tools needed to communicate key COVID-19 messages on prevention, risk factors and recommended actions for the general public, frontline health workers, other caregivers, and vulnerable communities in particular.
