Understanding the Opportunity

International donors must urgently scale up the response to Somalia’s worsening food crisis to avoid a full scale famine, CARE International warns.
Speaking after visiting some of the country’s worst affected areas, CARE’s Somalia Country Director, Raheel Nazir Chaudhary, said many communities remained cut off from lifesaving humanitarian aid.
“By now we should see trucks of food and water continually being driven back and forth on these roads but in many areas we have hardly seen any,” he said after visiting the regions Togdheer, Sool and Sanaag.
Good sanitation is important. It prevents children from illnesses like diarrhoea, keeps girls in school and reduces healthcare costs.

She crossed the border from Somalia into Kenya due to conflict and drought. For many years she has been living with her 11-year-old son in a self-constructed hut, using an unprotected latrine.

March 2017 marked six years of conflict in Syria. The Syrian government and its allies, as well as armed opposition groups, bear the primary and direct responsibility for the appalling reality that Syria’s civilians face on this grim anniversary. But they are not alone, the international communities’ collective failure to put an end to the conflict is unacceptable.
