Food and Non-Food Aid to Brava IDPs Somalia

International Relief Foundation (IRF) jointly with Caritas Somalia donated food & non-foodstuff for 1,050 people flood-affected families in Brava IDP camps Somalia’s Lower Shabelle Region.

The items consisting of rice, flour, sugar, cooking oil, mosquitos nets, blankets and tarpaulins were delivered to the displaced flood and drought victim in Brava the capital city of South West State of Somalia.

According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Assistance, the flooding has affected more than 750,000 people with more than 229,000 displaced. Communities most affected by the flooding stay along the Shabelle and Jubba rivers.

The flooding, caused by the unusually heavy rains, has also led to fatalities and damage to infrastructure.

The target groups of this intervention are the most vulnerable floods hit communities.

These include mostly women, children, elders and minorities and they are most marginalised communities in Somalia who has not rightfully received the attention needed, even though they may have been impacted equally or even worse than others but are not getting any humanitarian aid.

These are mainly due to lack of access for humanitarian organisations.

Emergency Food & Non Food Item Aid to Merca IDPs

International Relief Foundation is one of the few INGOs that has been able to access the most hard-to-reach areas on the outskirts of flooded Merca town.

Aid workers have reported is dire for those affected with the force migration from their villages due to ongoing infighting between Al Shabab militia and AMISOM. Some of those IDPs came with healthy warning such as acute watery diarrhea.

In South West State, an estimated 174,000 people have been affected by localised flash flooding in most towns. The worst affected places are those hosting IDPs in low-lying areas. Meanwhile, riverine flooding in Lower Shabelle has also displaced nearly 6,914 people from Brava to Marka to seek humanitarian assistance.

These vulnerable communities, are mainly of marginalised and minority clans in the area, are the worst affected who has not rightfully received the needed attention, even though they may have been impacted equally or even worse than others.

There are problems with sanitation as there are now no toilets or latrines in this area. The health problem will definitely worsen due to lack of toilets and sanitation facilities. The IDPs use bushes for their toilet needs.

IRF jointly with Caritas donated food & non-food packs to feed over 1000 people in the most vulnerable, hard-to-reach households, but this supply will only be enough to last 20-30 days.

The items consisting of rice, flour, sugar, cooking oil, mosquitos nets, blankets and tarpaulins were delivered to the displaced flood and drought victim in Merca South Western State of Somalia.

IRF began working in Somalia in 2011, providing emergency relief, education, food distribution, health, water supply, sanitation, conflict transformation, Ramadan food parcels and Qurbani meat to poor families in the Banadir, Bay and Lower Shabelle Regions. Our country office is in Mogadishu, with other field office in Baidoa.
