On Wednesday, WFP Somalia staff members have collectively received the WFP Award of Merit for 2008 in recognition of the extraordinary efforts and commitment of staff in responding to the humanitarian emergency in Somalia as insecurity has intensified.

The Buaale sub-office completed the screening of 8,000 children and mothers with poor nutritional status, who will be targeted under the SFP expansion programme in newly-targeted areas, including Harganti, Warba Gube, Mareereey, Afmadow and Hagar.
