The present operation concerns the emergency humanitarian assistance to drought victims. It was initiated because of the food insecurity faced by Djibouti in 2008. Indeed, more than 55,000 vulnerable people are in need of food assistance because, they are threatened by famine. Vulnerable people are spread across five districts of the country, namely: Arta, Ali Sabieh, Dikhil, Tadjourah and Obock. The operation should allow more specifically (i) the purchase and distribution of food, including 8,300 tons for victims of drought, 1,800 tons for Ali Addeh refugees, 1,600 tons for school canteens, health centers, program food for work and food for training, (ii) improvement of the drinking water supply system through the rehabilitation of the surface works of 12 pumping stations and the protection and equipment of 40 wells with manual pumps, (iii) the development of small agro-pastoral perimeters (small-scale agriculture and livestock farming) in line with the country's Action Plan for the emergency response to drought for the agriculture and livestock sectors.
The overall objective of the assistance is to provide rapid assistance by providing vulnerable populations with food distribution to 55,000 drought-affected people in the country's five districts and more than 6,000 refugees in Ali Addeh's camp. In addition to food, water and sanitation assistance for men and animals, consideration should be given to malnutrition in children, which is at a very worrying stage.
The operation will benefit the 55,000 people affected by food difficulties, with the major objective of saving lives and preserving their livelihoods.
