Somalia: children affected by conflict receive food supplements

Nearly 2,000 vulnerable children in the town of Hudur, in the Bakool Region of Somalia, have received emergency supplementary feeding support from the ICRC. In the past few months the town and its environs have been significantly affected by the ongoing conflict in Somalia. The ICRC, after carrying out a rapid assessment, identified that the most vulnerable of the population were in urgent need of support due to declining access to food in the local markets resulting from the fighting there. The ICRC approached all parties to the conflict to seek their approval to carry out an urgent distribution of nutritional supplements in favour of the most affected children in the town.
