There are over half a million people living in displacement camps in Mogadishu as a result of the famine and years of civil war. Most do not have access to clean water and basic sanitation services. Children, already weakened by malnutrition, are succumbing to cholera and other infectious diseases that spread easily in the overcrowded camps.

Our team is on the ground in Mogadishu, concentrating on water, sanitation and other humanitarian solutions to address the crisis and save thousands of lives.
