Additional Allocation 2017 to OCHA Field Operation in Somalia in Response to the Hunger Emergency

Projet terminé

On 24 February 2017, SDC/HA pledged an additional allocation of CHF 15 million to support emergency relief operations to help populations facing starvation in parts of Africa (South Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria/the Lake Chad Region) and Yemen. This decision followed a call issued by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on 22 February 2017 urging for USD 4.4 billion aid to avert famine for 20 million people who risk starvation in these countries. CHF 0.5 million will be allocated to support OCHA’s field operation in Somalia.
