A student in Somalia receives a nutritious cooked meal

Aid workers provide a ten year old student with a hot meal as part of a school meal provided by UN World Food Program (WFP) to the Mohamed Moge Primary School in Hargeisa, Somalia on April 4, 2017. School meals are a vital safety net for vulnerable families, particularly in times of crisis. With USAID Food for Peace support, WFP provides nutritious cooked meals to school children to relieve hunger and encourage primary school attendance. In some regions, Somalia is in a severe drought - blamed partially on the El Nino weather phenomenon. It has killed off livestock and crops, leaving 6.2 million people in urgent need of help. In early 2017, the United States rapidly scaled up humanitarian response efforts. With U.S. support, the international community is now reaching more than 3 million people each month with lifesaving aid. Credit: Karel Prinsloo, WFP
