Nutrition

One of the key foundations for the development of a productive population is good nutrition. Achieving good nutrition, particularly among women and children, is associated with important short and long term health, educational and economic benefits. Over the last decade, undernutrition is a significant  health problem affecting thousands of families in Somalia. Rates of acute and chronic malnutrition have remained persistently high throughout the country. Food security has been adversely affected by ongoing conflict, displacement, breakdown in social and public services coupled with recurrent
droughts and floods.  

Our objective is to improve the nutritional status of the Somali population, thereby contributing to an overall improvement in their survival,
growth and development. Through support from our generous donors, our organization impacts vulnerable communities, especially those affected by war and drought living in Internally Displaced  Persons camps in Lower Juba, Hobyo and Kaxda regions
