Somalia is one of the world’s longest running humanitarian crises, having lasted for well over two decades already. This has seriously affected its population’s food security and livelihoods and greatly increased their vulnerability to disease and malnutrition.
What We Do
Save the Children’s work in Somalia addresses the urgent needs of the Internally Displaced People (IDPs) and returnee populations in Mogadishu and Baidoa in South and Central Somalia by providing lifesaving and gender-sensitive health, nutrition, and water, sanitation and hygiene services. Specifically, we are providing health care for communicable illnesses and malnutrition, particularly for children; and maternal health services, as well as increased access to water, sanitation and hygiene services.
