On 3 May 2012 Muslim Aid Somalia received a shipment of nutritious food items including porridge from our partner Americares. This food will help reduce malnutrition amongst many children who are still suffering from the effects of last year's drought. These items will be sent to remote health and nutrition centers in Kismayo. Muslim Aid is the only organisation in Kismayo which is running an effective health and nutrition programme.
Around 7,500 moderately malnourished children will get benefit from this supply in the coming weeks.
Muslim Aid has launched an urgent emergency appeal to provide humanitarian relief to people affected by the severe drought and malnutrition occurring in the countries of eastern Horn of Africa.
