Somalia is a country devastated by over 20 years of civil war. Its human development indicators remain the worst in the world and the humanitarian situation is extremely fragile: over 1 million people remain displaced and the country is regularly hit by droughts and by frequent escalations in violence.
In response to this grave crisis, since 1984 COOPI has been running projects in the areas of health, food security, water and hygiene to improve the living conditions of thousands of vulnerable families.
To address the lack of basic healthcare and clean water, we provide emergency medical services, outpatient clinics for the treatment of HIV and tuberculosis;. Hence, we work to guarantee safe and regular access to drinking water,by restoring water supply points, and eventually promote good hygiene practices, as well as the construction of latrines.
In addition, to address the severe food insecurity, we distribute seeds, agricultural tools and food vouchers, we train farmers and shepherds in the best practices for crop cultivation and livestock care.
Our ongoing activities in Somalia are managed from our coordination office in Nairobi due to the great country political instability

*Data about COOPI’s achievements are updated until October 2017.
