This intervention is planning to respond to this emergency by delivering lifesaving food to the vulnerable members of the flood-affected communities in Beletweyne, Baido and El-Berde. This year’s floods have displaced more than 200.000 people according to UNHCR-Protection Return Monitoring Network (PRMN) as reported by UN OCHA. Communities throughout Southern Somalia suffer from reoccurring flooding, further exasperated by ongoing political instability that continues to result in the loss of lives, homes and livelihoods. Some of the first responders have begun to arrive in the affected areas, mainly with funds and volunteers from the surrounding regions, including diaspora actors and donors that continue to mobilise across the globe. Traditional humanitarian actors and donors are slowly beginning to react, but are expected to start allocating funds and resources in the next few months. Some aid supplies have made their way to the affected communities; however, access is a major obstacle to sustain this, with great disparities between urban and rural communities. The immediate priority is on delivering sustained lifesaving food, WASH and emergency health support.
