The Humanitarian crisis in Somalia is one of the long standing emergencies, despite the continuous support of international organizations to Somalia. Due to lack of insecurity, continuous conflict and Natural disasters like Drought and floods worsen the situation. The above factors have led millions of people to leave their homes and become internally displaced.
With the help from our member’s contribution and the Somali community, SOYVDA have played a major role in several emergency situations. For example, back in 2017, SOYVDA launched drought emergency food aid where we able to facilitate and donate through our membership and the community 15 tonnes of dry food and over 1600 litres of cooking oil to 515 families in Garasbaleey and Kaxda Internally Displaced Camps in three phases, where the effects of drought were hardest hit.
In May 2018, there was huge floods that hit Different regions in Somalia, due to increased rainfall that led river water to overflow risking the lives of thousands people. One of such areas that the floods were hugely effected was Beledwein city. Our main approach was to respond the floods by providing immediate aids like free Medical care, shelters and mosquito nets.
After we realized that there is a great need in Basic health services at the IDPs at the outskirts of Mogadishu, SOYVDA launched Baxnaani project, which is Mobile clinic and community awareness project. The mobile clinic aims to bring high-quality health care directly to communities who lack access to basic health service. While the health awareness aims to increase community health knowledge.
As a part of Humanitarian solution, we are currently planning Bar project, which is educations program that aims to provide free education system to the children between 6-18 years who do not have the opportunity to go to school.
