Nigeria: driven by conflict, the humanitarian crisis in nigeria's north east zone is one of the world's ten most severe crises. In nigeria, 7.1 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, while 1.8 million people in the conflict-affected states are internally displaced. It is estimated that 823,000 people live in areas inaccessible to international humanitarian organisations. More than one million children between the ages of six months and five years are acutely malnourished across the affected areas. One in five children with severe acute malnutrition and one in 15 children with moderate acute malnutrition are at risk of death if untreated. Amid an increasingly intense conflict and new waves of displacements in the north east, action against hunger has been the first responder in many areas affected by conflict, striving to employ a multi-sectoral approach and to connect with early recovery interventions where possible. Our food security programs have ...

South sudan: in south sudan, the revitalized peace process has presented new opportunities. However, great challenges persist: years of conflict have left more than 7 million people in need of assistance and protection. Bureaucratic obstacles and violence against aid workers limit access and disrupt lifesaving programs. Conflict pushed more people into hunger in 2018, and malnutrition rates remained high. 2 million people were internally displaced, and 2.2 million people have become refugees. The country is marked by excessive gender-based violence, declining economic opportunities and strained health centers. Half of all children are not attending school, and two-thirds of the population has no access to safe water. In 2018, we provided nutrition and health services to more than 178,000 people, including treatment of more than 46,000 children under five. We empowered mothers to screen their children, improve care and feeding practices for infants, and prevent malnutrition. Our cash-for-assets program provided assistance ...

Somalia:somalia is experiencing a prolonged and complex crisis characterized by conflict, displacement, drought and disease. Malnutrition rates are high: nearly one million children under the age of five are estimated to be acutely malnourished in 2019, of whom 138,200 severely malnourished. Key drivers of malnutrition are food insecurity, lack of diverse diets, limited health services and inadequate access to water and sanitation. The influx of people to urban areas puts a strain on already limited resources, while displaced populations face considerable challenges. Mothers searching for work may be forced to leave children without proper care. Many people lack access to appropriate shelter and sanitation and hygiene facilities. In somalia we contributed to the reduction of undernutrition and common illnesses among children in bakool, banadir and nugaal, by providing integrated nutrition, health and food security services, as well as water, sanitation, and hygiene services. In 2018, 41,502 children under the age ...
