The military offensive by the Somali National Armed Forces and the African Union Mission in Somalia in southern and central Somalia began one month ago.
Since then, six regions have been directly affected. The offensive has so far led to the temporary movement of over 40,000 people.
This is against a backdrop of 2.9 million people who need immediate life-saving and livelihoods support. Somalia continues to be one of the most volatile and operationally challenging environments for humanitarian workers.
