Over 18 months, Save the Children will provide food and clean water to affected populations in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia; lifesaving nutrition interventions for severely malnourished children; nutrition interventions for pregnant and lactating women; and food and other relief to Somali refugees in reception and transit sites, and permanent camps in Ethiopia and Kenya.
