  • Over 2.3 million people are in need of assistance, out of which over 730 000 are in a crisis or emergency situation.
  • Somalia’s 1.1 million displaced people remain particularly vulnerable. Over 60 per cent of those unable to meet their food needs are displaced and often face violence, discrimination and abuse.
  • In 2015, the European Commission has allocated €35 million to support lifesaving assistance in the country. Delivering aid in Somalia remains extremely difficult with aid workers facing security threats and restrictions to access people in need.
