Vision statement

By the grace of God, Uplift Relief aims to be a major facilitator of relief and resilience building efforts across Somalia.

Mission statement

Uplift Relief exists to offer immediate, life-saving relief, and to build climate resilience among impoverished individuals, households, and communities in partnership with like-minded international agencies, state actor, and none-state agencies.

Uplift Relief’s integrity framework

We seek to apply these value commitments in the interaction with our key stakeholders, including beneficiaries, partners, donors, and colleagues. For that purpose, Uplift’s Relief Integrity Framework was developed, comprising of three main pillars: integrity standards and norms, reporting complaints, and addressing complaints.

Program strategy

Our working context

According to 2023 UNOCHA’s situation analysis, the humanitarian situation in Somalia continues to deteriorate. The severe drought, hunger, disease and violence merge to bring Somalia to the brink of famine. An estimated 8.25 million people (1.5 million children under five, 1.8 million girls (five to 17 years), 1.8 million boys (five to 17 years), 1.3 million women, 1.4 million men and 412,000 elderly) require humanitarian assistance. Significant segments of the population are on the brink of famine. In the absence of sufficient funding and enhanced capacity, Famine is projected between April and June 2023 and beyond for three population groups in the following areas: Baidoa and Burhakaba Rural districts as well as IDPs in Baidoa and Mogadishu
