What RASEDO is Doing to Help the Region

Since its inception, different projects in different thematic areas across the regions have been implemented making the organization friendly and readily accepted in communities living in these areas. RASEDO has partnered with the UN, International organizations, government institutions, local communities, and people in the diaspora to enhance success in the implementation and sustainability of our programs. Through our interventions, we have been able to impact the lives of over 300,000 people including women and children hence saving lives. Below are some of our interventions in the targeted areas:

Ø  Following the Cholera outbreak in Kurbio-Somalia due to water contamination, RASEDO intervened and saw the construction of toilets that have greatly contributed reduction of cholera-related deaths in the area.

Ø  Our advocacy efforts saw the establishment of Garissa township garbage collection and disposal unit by the local authorities.

Ø  Through awareness creation and community mobilization on the need to conserve the environment we have seen a reduction in logging in the Jubaland region.

Ø  Our interventions in conflict-affected populations saw the construction of shelters for IDPs in Kismayu and providing them with essential non-food items that saved children from life-threatening diseases including mosquito-related infections and women and girls from rape, and insecurity. 

Why Our Work Matters

5.9 million people require humanitarian assistance due to the combined impact of conflict, unpredictable climatic shocks, including drought, flooding and shocks such as desert locust crop damage and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Four in 100 Somali children die during the first month of life, eight in 100 before their first birthday, and 1 in 8 before they turn five. Low immunization levels and inadequate access to quality healthcare and life-saving supplies erode children’s chances of surviving past infancy and developing to their full potential.

In Somalia, 4.5 million people are still in need of humanitarian Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) support after decades of protracted crisis.

The food crisis in Somalia is the result of rapid shifts from drought to flooding, as well as violence and conflict.

In Somalia, approximately 840,000 children under the age of five are likely to be acutely malnourished.

Famine was last declared in Somalia six years ago, and more than 260,000 people died – more than half of them children.

Families are dying not only from starvation, but also from diseases such as cholera and measles because they lack clean water and sanitation. More than half of the population live below the poverty line, making them even more vulnerable to climate change disasters such as floods and drought.
