Humanitarian assistance; Save the Children Finland


The Save the Children operations 2017 will be implemented in Iraq and Somalia. Save the Children will assist the most vulnerable families, with special focus on the well-being of children in 14 IDP camps in Baidoa, Somalia, focusing on drought affected IDPs to address their urgent livelihood and basic needs in an extremely fragile situation, where poor women and their children are exposed to food insecurity, malnutrition, poor health and gender-based violence. In Iraq, Save the Children will reduce the vulnerabilities of refugee, IDP and returnee children and their families through specialized child protection services, cash transfers and strengthened community capacity to identify, prevent and respond to child protection needs in Iraq. The project focuses on vulnerable camp and non-camp settings: two villages in Sinoni in Ninewa and Gawilan refugee camp in Dohuk. Funding from the MFA for the two operations is 900 000 euros (Iraq 440 000 euros, Somalia 460 000 euros).
