WFP has begun giving food assistance in the southern Somali city of Kismayo for the first time in four years. Improved security and access now make it possible to reach Kismayo's most vulerable people. The need is significant - a recent survey shows that almost half of the city's households struggle to meet their daily needs and about a quarter of children below the age of five are malnourished.
