In 2011, 4 million Somali people were in need of emergency aid due to a famine the UN called the "the worst humanitarian crisis in the world." Overcoming immense political and logistical obstacles, the Global Enrichment Foundation, in partnership with Hope for the Nations (HFTN), was one of the first humanitarian organizations to provide relief in Somalia. The Convoy for Hope program delivered food aid to over 160,000 Somali women, men and children in the midst of the crisis.

In February 2012, the UN announced an end to famine conditions in Somalia. But on-going drought and sky-rocketing food prices continue to cripple a country already devastated by two decades of civil war. According to UN reports, an estimated 3.7 million Somalis are still in need of humanitarian assistance. Somalia’s malnutrition rates are among the highest in the world and in the South-Central region, 1 in every 3 children is malnourished.

The Global Enrichment Foundation and HFTN remain committed to providing food aid to Somalia's most vulnerable and have recently launched Food for Hope, a school-based food aid program that supports over 800 young students attending Waqaf-Dhiblawe School outside of Mogadishu.
