Programs in Somalia


Healthy Food

In Somalia, a large number of orphan children cannot meet their daily food requirements due to the compounding impacts of extended drought, flooding, desert locust infestations, the economic impacts of COVID-19 and conflict. Hiil Waal's programs work with partners to support provide humanitarian assistance to orphan communities that struggle to gain access to or afford a healthy and nutritious diet.

Medical Care

A large number of orphan children in Somalia lacks access to essential health services. This disporoportionally affects children under the age of 5 who die daily due to mostly preventable or treatable causes. With your help and the help of our partners, we work daily to provide access to quality healthcare and health services for underserved children around Somalia.


Clean Water

More 50% of orphan children in Somalia lack access to safe drinking. This lack of access to clean water creates personal and public health issues affecting the short and long term health and quality of life of orphans in Somalia. With your support and the support of our partners, we work on developing solutions to eradicate these problems.


Many orphan children living in Somalia have limited access to formal and informal education. Hiil Waal is working everyday to provide access to education to children and communitities in Somalia. By giving access to education, we provide them with the knowledge and skills needed succeed and open doors to opportunities that were otherwise shut.
