How VSO is responding
Across the country, families face food shortages, high levels of child malnutrition, and inadequate health facilities. Women have been unable to access medical support.
VSO volunteers and partners are providing financial support so mothers and pregnant women can have much-needed food, water and blankets.
We're working in camps providing psycho-social support to girls and women who have suffered gender based violence. This empowers them to understand their rights and break the silence on their suffering.
VSO is also helping to rebuild health services by training health workers in lifesaving skills and equipping them with knowledge they can use to treat patients.
