€90 Winter Family Emergency Kit - Provide a vulnerable Somali family with a Winter Family Emergency Kit, including waterproof shelter reinforcement, x2 blankets, jerry cans, sleeping mats and mosquito nets to help them survive winter.
Drought, hunger, and conflict are devastating lives in Somalia, as the country stands on the brink of a deadly famine.
Nearly 6.7 million people are acutely food insecure, while 1.8 million children under the age of five are enduring acute malnutrition, accounting for 54 percent of the child population. Since January 2022, 25 of the 74 drought-affected districts have recorded over 10,000 cases of cholera, while drought has also displaced 1,170,842 people between January and September 2022. In September alone, 68,393 people fled their homes, and now winter is here. Malnourished families must face bitter temperatures in flimsy shelters with little protection from the cold.
In response, we are providing winter kits to families in drought-affected areas containing nutritious food items. By donating to this lifesaving appeal, you can provide a family with 10 kg of rice, 10 kg of wheat flour, 5 kg of sugar, 3 litres of cooking oil, 900g of milk powder, 14 kg of local red beans and 1 kg of salt. The winter kit also contains 15 x 18 metre shelter reinforcements, two blankets, jerry cans, sleeping mats and a mosquito net.
By supporting our Somalia Winter Family Emergency Appeal, you can help ensure no one is left behind this winter,
Why give to Human Appeal?
Last year, the arrival of winter, along with continuing cases of COVID-19, saw many in Mogadishu struggling to survive. People living in displacement camps, including those with disabilities, lone mothers, orphans, and the elderly, were forced to endure bitterly cold temperatures in the flimsiest of shelters. Yet because of your donations, we could provide essential winter kits to 343 displaced families living in camps in the Kahda region of Mogadishu. Each family received two protective sheets for shelter, two warm blankets, two sleeping mats, detergent and washing soap and a Jerry can. Thank you for spreading the warmth last winter.
