The humanitarian situation in Somalia continues to deteriorate due to the ongoing drought crisis, affecting more than half of the country’s population – 6.7 million – of which 4 million are children. Since the beginning of the year, UNICEF’s emergency intervention has resulted in the treatment of 98,900 children for life-threatening severe acute malnutrition; 672,500 women and children under-5 with emergency lifesaving health services; and 1.58 million people accessing temporary safe drinking water. Despite the large scale humanitarian assistance delivered to date, however, sever food insecurity, high acute malnutrition and a high disease burden will require a sustained effort if we are to save more lives.
