Norwegian Church Aid struggles together with people and organisations across the world to eradicate poverty and injustice.
We have delivered food rations to 30,000 people and water to 100,000 people and have now applied for 12 million NOK towards food support for 20,000 people for a period of 5 months in northern Gedo province. Our network is ready to scale up this effort to meet the needs of 115,000 people as soon as financing becomes available.
