Despite the UN officially declaring an end to famine in Somalia, a severe humanitarian crisis remains. Over two million Somalis are still in need of emergency rations, many of them young children. On Feb. 22, the Charity & Security Network hosted a telebriefing on how the crisis in Somalia became so devastating, what still needs to be done to alleviate suffering, and how to prevent similar crises in the future. 

Speakers included:

Allan Jury, Director of the U.S. Relations Office for the World Food Programme




Vincent Cochetel, Regional Representative for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees
