A finales del 2014, el Programa Mundial de Alimentos en Bolivia recibió una contribución de 522.000 euros por parte del gobierno italiano. Esto llevó a la implementación del programa “Apoyo a la seguridad alimentaria de poblaciones vulnerables en los departamentos de Pando, Chuquisaca y Tarija” en Bolivia.
El objetivo principal del PMA y de Italia era fortalecer las capacidades de resiliencia de las familias vulnerables al impulsar sus medios de vida y crear oportunidades comerciales para sus productos.
Hinda Guled, 29, recently delivered a baby girl at Garowe General Hospital. Her husband, Farah, describes the delivery as a miracle because Hinda almost died giving birth. She was rushed to hospital by skilled birth attendants, who happened to have been in Taleh, carrying out an Integrated Community Reproductive Health Outreach Campaign for drought-affected populations in Sool region in the Puntland State of Somalia.
KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS
Food insecurity aggravated by chronic drought and negative coping strategies, in the context of limited capacity. Malnutrition is not only linked to food insecurity, but also caused by poor eating habits.
Recent and former population displacement due to conflicts in neighboring CAR, Libya, Nigeria, and Sudan (security volatility around Chad).
