|Project Overview||With the support of our partners, KAALO NEDERLAND implemented Covid 19 response project. The target populations that benefited from this project were IDPs in Camp Shabelle, and Shabelle is the name of a desolate refugee camp created in the nineties. Here more than 500 families currently reside. Most of them are from Mogadishu and its environs and fled the chaos and threat after President of Siad Barre’s departure. Life in the camp has dwindled for decades. This project’s target populations are poor and low-income families that more than half are young and women marginalized, which estimated 75% of the last census are unemployed. The vulnerable communities such as children, women, IDPs, persons with disabilities, and marginalized young girls face depilated difficulties. And boys are already dealing with multiple crises, internally displaced people (IDPs), facing food insecurity, and being exposed to the climate, socioeconomic and political shocks during the Corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic disease. The project partners included IDPs in Camp Shabelle, the camp committees, the IDPs department of local government, and village administration. The project target beneficiaries more than 500 households and indirect beneficiaries were more than 15,000 people with Camp Shabelle IDPs and Garowe district. In the year 2020, the COVID19 spread fast most of the world and hugely affected all the community’s aspects: economic activities, learning and schools, working fields, social movements, and international and local flights. So many countries locked down the cities. Somali Federal government and its member states burned both international and local flights burned social movements among the regions, social meetings, and sports clubs. Outbreaks of COVID-19 in Puntland, especially in Camp Shabelle IDPs, posed a massive threat to these people who are already extremely vulnerable due to displacement. The COVID-19 pandemic preparedness and response required a robust collective effort through a whole-of-government approach in partnership with international and local actors.|
