Somalia Emegency


With a per capita gross domestic product (GDP) of USD 450 in 2016 and a poverty headcount rate of 51.6 percent, Somalia is among the poorest nations in the world. Poverty is widespread, and large proportions of the population remains vulnerable to poverty and food insecurity. Over six million people live in rural areas where food insecurity is high. Social-economic outcomes are poor. The Somalis have worse access to services, lower educational outcomes, and are less successful in the labor market. Lack of access to an improved source of water is the most common deprivation among rural households. More than 9 in 10 rural households are deprived in this dimension. Lack of access to an improved source of water and to education affect 41%  of Somali households, respectively. 

Somalia’s undiversified economy , especially  with respect to the agricultural sector constitutes the mainstay of the economy. Variation is related to the poor connectivity of roads, which hampered the trade of goods across regions.
Muslim Aid USA through intervention with “Rise Against Hunger” will run a malnutrition program that  within 12-16 weeks will focus on improving nutrition and hunger of vulnerable individuals, including IDPs.
