Résumé
More than 13 million people are affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa. Nearly half of the children in Somalia are malnourished. World Concern is providing emergency food, water and supplies to the most vulnerable, underserved families affected by this crisis.

Contexte
More than 13 million people in the Horn of Africa are affected by the worst drought in 60 years. Several seasons of failed rains, skyrocketing food prices, conflict in the area, and lack of humanitarian access have worsened the crisis. Families that normally depend on animals have lost their herds to drought. Thousands are leaving their homes in search of food and water and are arriving in strained host communities that are unable to support them. Half of Somali children are malnourished.

Présentation
World Concern is providing emergency food, water and supplies to the most vulnerable, underserved families affected by the famine. Rations include grain, oil, beans, sugar, and special, high-calorie supplementary nutrition for young children. The capacity of existing wells will be increased with pumps running 24 hours a day. Drought-affected and displaced families will gain access to water from local wells.

Impact
In this initial phase of disaster response, lives will be saved with emergency supplies of food and water. In addition to increasing the capacity of existing wells, World Concern will build new wells and rainwater catchments systems in the drought-affected region. During the next anticipated rainy season, we plan to begin distributing farming support with drought-resistant vegetable gardening with irrigation systems.
