Countries in the Horn of Africa, including Ethiopia, Somalia and South Sudan, have been facing a devastating drought – often described as “the worst in a generation”.
With EU humanitarian support, UNICEF is implementing a 3-year programme in Ethiopia, Somalia and South Sudan to prevent malnutrition and provide life-saving aid to those already malnourished.
Over its duration, the initiative wants to reach 3.1 million severely malnourished children in the 3 countries. It also aims to build stronger health and nutrition systems to better withstand future shocks.
