Risk of relapse
Call to action: Somalia crisis update
On 7 May 2014, 26 agencies asked the world to remember Somalia, where 2.9 million people are living in crisis. At that time, only 12% of Somalia’s humanitarian needs had been funded for 2014. That figure now stands at 27% - and we’re already halfway through the year. In the last few weeks experts have been on the ground assessing what activities are needed where, to pull people out of crisis. Based on their findings, agencies are now asking for action across eight sectors to save lives and avoid a relapse to the catastrophe of 2011.
