Présentation
Middle Shabelle has officially been declared a famine area. Many people have moved to Mogadishu while they could, but a majority did not have the means. They are in need of food since their livelihood is currently non existing. Due to the drought, the main basis of the rural people’s livelihood, i.e. cattle and agriculture, has been hit hard. Large numbers of livestock, sometimes up to more than 80% of one familys holding, have died and the lack of rain made the agriculture practically nonexistent for at least season. Adale and Aden Yabal are traditionally no real agricultural areas so the people have to struggle till the livestock is getting back to normal. Since the malnutrition situation seems rapidly to get worse, food intervention is urgently needed With this project, WOCCA aims to provide 2,900 households with 40kg of rice, 5 kg of sugar, 4 l of oil fortified with vitamin A and 6 kg of pulses (cowpeas) each month for 2 months. The most vulnerable people in the area are women with children as well as elderly men. These people are the first target of the interventions, since they are the ones who are most in need and at the same time especially women care for a lot of dependent children.
