Thousands of families remain in urgent need of help
August 2012 - One year since the peak of the food crisis in the Horn of Africa, the humanitarian situation may have improved slightly but thousands of families still remain in desperate need of assistance.
Action Against Hunger teams are still working tirelessly across Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Djibouti. Thanks to the support for our East Africa Emergency Appeal, our teams have saved thousands of children’s lives and have assisted hundreds of thousands of families over the last twelve months.
Whether constructing wells, curing malnourished children, or preventing water-borne diseases, ACF has made significant progress across the Horn of Africa this past year.
In 2011, nearly 550 000 people have been supported by ACF teams across the Horn of Africa.
Number of Nutrition beneficiaries in 2011: 14,188 people
Number of Health beneficiaries in 2011: 22,158 people
Number of WASH beneficiaries in 2011: more than 227,000 people
Number of Food security beneficiaries in 2011: 12 500 people
Total number of beneficiaries from January to August 2011 in Somalia: up to 275 000 people
From March 2011 until August, nearly 500 000 people have been supported by ACF teams over the Horn of Africa.
Number of Nutrition beneficiaries from March to July 2011: 9 497 people
Number of Health beneficiaries from March to July 2011: 19 627 people
Number of WASH beneficiaries from March to July: more than 223 000 people
Number of Food security beneficiaries from March to now: 12 500 people
Total number of beneficiaries from March to July in Somalia: 265 000 people
Our teams are scaling up our emergency nutrition programs as the numbers of acutely malnourished children admitted for treatment have more than doubled over the last few months.
Across Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Djibouti, we’re helping thousands of children in the hardest-hit regions—from the 3,000 malnourished children we’re treating in Somalia, to our efforts in Garbatulla, Kenya, where one in five children is now malnourished. We’re racing to reduce the impact of water shortages by constructing wells, drilling boreholes, and installing storage devices to capture future rainfall, in addition to promoting hygiene to prevent the spread of diarrhea, cholera, and other water-borne diseases.
