The drought in Faragul, TuurA, TuurB and Wardheer villages of Garadag district of Sanaag region has caused a severe water and food shortage. This has continued to aggravate vulnerabilities and trigger population displacements across Sanaag region. The proposed intervention aims to assist vulnerable children, women, disabled and elderly, who are identified as acutely malnourished during screenings. The intervention also aims to reduce the risk of child mortality and, through an awareness-raising component, aspires to enhance the basic nutrition knowledge of mothers and other women in communities targeted by the supplementary food distribution activity. Through the intervention, targeted vulnerable people in Faragul, Tuura, Tuurb and Wardheer districts in Sanaag region will have immediate access to nutritious food, increasing their nutrition intake and survival rate. Accordingly, provision of supplementary food and water will reduce malnutrition and improve health conditions.
