Where We Work

Somalia

The triple threat of locusts, flooding and the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with chronic issues of instability, cyclical droughts, and recurrent natural disasters (ex. flooding) have left millions of Somali households (HHs) in need of lifesaving humanitarian assistance. Intervention is critical to meet urgent basic needs, prevent further deterioration and pave the way for recovery and resilience.

In response to this deep crisis, since 1984, COOPI has been running emergency and long-term resilience building projects including health, food security & livelihoods, water and sanitation projects to improve the living conditions of thousands of vulnerable families.

Especially, since 2012, COOPI has been part of the SomReP (Somalia Resilience Program) consortium, with which it carries out resilience programs in Bay and Gedo regions, with interventions in 11 villages in Baidoa district and 10 villages in Dolow and Belet-Hawa districts.

With regard to the emergency needs as a result of the prevailing drought and to protect livelihoods, COOPI is currently supporting 6,348 households (38,088 persons) in Bay, Banadir and Gedo regions with Unconditional and conditional cash transfers.
