Dubai Cares worked with the World Food Programme (WFP) in Ethiopia to provide the children in southern Somalia with much needed food and nutrition, preventing disease and death caused by starvation. This program was launched to help combat famine and save the lives of as many Somali children as possible. Dubai Cares and WFP implemented a Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO) “Food Assistance to Sudanese, Somali and Eritrean Refugees”. As part of the program, WFP provided general feeding to all refugees in camps, supplementary feeding for particularly malnourished populations and school feeding for refugee girls and boys attending schools.
