Coronavirus has created a perfect storm in Somalia’s humanitarian crisis. Our teams are helping to save lives at the first quarantine centre in the country’s capital Mogadishu.
Action Against Hunger has been providing life-saving prevention and treatment for decades. Covid-19 is no different.
Since the pandemic first started, we’ve been delivering PPE and other resources to those in need, spreading awareness about the virus and teaming up with local governments to combat the pandemic.
When health facilities became overwhelmed, we ramped up our support even further to get quarantine facilities and treatment hospitals up and running.
The next step in stopping the spread of the virus in its tracks through vaccines. Today, less than 10% of people in Africa are fully vaccinated. We want to change that. As a trusted healthcare provider, we’re working hard to get vaccines to those in need in Somalia, South Sudan, Madagascar and Zimbabwe.
