Lutheran World Relief Receives Department of State Grant to Continue Post-Drought Recovery in East Africa

Baltimore, October 21, 2013 — The Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya are currently home to more than 470,000 people.

Somalia: Humanitarian Dashboard (as of 30 September 2013)

SITUATION OVERVIEW

An estimated 870,000 people require urgent humanitarian assistance while an additional 2.3 million require livelihood support until the end of the year. This is the lowest number ever since famine was declared in 2011 according to a joint report by the Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) and the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET). This reduction is attributed to successive seasons of average to above average rainfall, low food prices and sustained humanitarian response.

Consolidated Appeal for Somalia 2012 End Year Report

1. Executive Summary

Famine conditions were still present in parts of southern Somalia when the 2012 humanitarian appeal for Somalia was launched in December 2011. On 3 February 2012, the famine was declared over, largely due to the delivery of aid under extremely difficult conditions and the exceptional harvest at the start of the year. With carry-over funding from 2011 and continued generous support in the months following the famine, humanitarian actors were able to build on the gains.

Somalia Drought: Emergency Appeal n° MDRSO001 - Final Report

Summary: The drought response operation was initiated by IFRC in January 2011 as part of a scaled up Somalia Annual Country Plan 2011 to respond to the drought situation in Somaliland and Puntland. The funds secured in early January 2011 enabled International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC) and Somali Red Crescent Society (SRCS) to kick start the operation in April 2011. However, the general food security situation in Somalia deteriorated in July 2011 which led the United Nations to declare famine in Southern Somalia.
