Humanitarian Situation Reports

UNICEF Somalia/2017/Makundi
© UNICEF Somalia/2017/Makundi

Conflict, insecurity, drought and famine have defined Somalia throughout more than two decades. Currently, about a third of the population is still in crisis and in need of immediate food security and livelihood assistance – over 70 percent are in the conflict-ridden South where humanitarian access is limited due to the high level of insecurity. Rates of acute malnutrition illustrate an almost unimaginable situation: 30 per cent of children under 5 are acutely malnourished.

The Humanitarian Situation Reports provide concise operational documents to support the coordination of humanitarian response. It provides a snapshot of current needs, response and gaps and is produced on a monthly basis.

Highlights

  • Considering the scale of internal displacement (IDPs) and extent of needs, UNICEF is prioritizing the delivery of life-saving services across the different sites.
    -  99,649 severely malnourished children received therapeutic nutrition treatment in districts that host IDP sites. This figure represents 52 percent of SAM admissions countrywide with over half of them reported from Mogadishu, Kismayo and Baidoa.
    UNICEF vaccinated 168,834 children against measles (together with Vitamin A supplementation and deworming) in 250 IDPs camps in Baidoa, South Gaalkacyo, Afgooye, Banadir corridor, as well as Puntland. Between April and August 2017, 57,641 children under-5 were also treated for measles in IDP sites.
    In Doloow and Luuq, UNICEF has launched a WASH project to support over 27,000 people including IDPs. In Baidoa, UNICEF has started the construction of 500 sanitation facilities, and provision of water to benefit an estimated 48,000 people.
  • UNICEF has noted a worrying trend of increased forced recruitment of children by Al Shabaab (AS) in the Bay Region. Although exact numbers are yet to be ascertained, a wave of displacement, including unaccompanied children, is reported from areas surrounding Baidoa as families look to avoid the forced recruitment efforts.
