Food distribution to 600 families
Somalia is facing the most severe humanitarian crisis
in the world today and the worst food security crisis in
Africa since the country’s 1990/91 famine. At least 2.4
million people are in acute food and livelihood crisis,
which is more than a quarter of the country’s population.
Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU), in its
report, has warned that 750,000 people risk death in the
first half of 2012 if efforts to respond to the famine are
not scaled up. The drought has also caused the death
of up to 90 percent of livestock which is a source of food
for the people.
MERCY Malaysia efforts
With focus on newly arrived IDPs, MERCY Malaysia
distributed 600 food baskets consisting of 25kg of rice,
2 liter of cooking oil and 5kg of sugar to the families. The
programme, directly funded by the Perdana Global Peace
Foundation, was conducted on the eve of Eidul Fitri.
