The ALIMA SPIRIT: ALIMA's purpose is to save lives and care for the most vulnerable populations, without any discrimination based on identity, religion or politics, through actions based on proximity, innovation and the alliance of organizations and individuals. We act with humanism, impartiality and respect for universal medical ethics. In order to access patients, we are committed to intervening in a neutral and independent manner.

THE VALUES and PRINCIPLES of our action, inscribed in our CHARTER :
1. Putting the patient first

2. Revolutionizing humanitarian medicine

3. Responsibility and freedom

4. Improve the quality of our actions

5. Placing trust

6. Collective intelligence

7. Environmental responsibility

ALIMA promotes and defends the principles of fundamental human rights. ALIMA has a zero-tolerance approach to perpetrators of gender-based and sexual violence and to inaction in the face of suspected or actual violence. The protection of those who benefit and are impacted by our intervention is our top priority in everything we do. Everyone who collaborates with ALIMA is committed to :

Respect the charter, the code of conduct, the institutional policies including the policy of protection against abuse of power and gender and sexual violence, the policy of prevention of corruption and fraud;

Report violations of policies, framework documents and procedures to a supervisor, manager or referral agent

Since its inception in 2009, ALIMA has treated more than 10 million patients, and today deploys its operations in 12 countries in Africa. In 2021, we have developed 60 humanitarian medical response projects to meet the needs of populations affected by conflict, epidemics and extreme poverty. All of these projects are in support of national health authorities through 357 health facilities (including 45 hospitals and 312 health centers). We work in partnership with local NGOs whenever possible to ensure that our patients benefit from expertise wherever it is available, whether in their country or in the rest of the world. In addition, to improve the humanitarian response, we conduct operational and clinical research projects, particularly in the areas of malnutrition and viral hemorrhagic fevers. ALIMA also conducts operations in response to the covid-19 pandemic in all our missions.

At the end of March 2022, ALIMA visited Ethiopia for the first time to develop official contacts and gather enough information to set up an ALIMA mission in the country.

At the end of May 2022, ALIMA conducted an exploratory mission in the Afder zone in order to better understand the context, and to assess the health and nutrition needs, to identify the need for a humanitarian intervention. Three woredas were targeted: Hargele, Barey and Elkare. The selection was based on; the latest national hotspot classification (all three are priority one), several health indicators shared by the Regional Health Bureau (RHB), recent data from the regional nutrition cluster showing rising acute malnutrition levels, the Famine Early Warning Systems Network forecasts on food security (all three would be IPC level 4 - Emergency phase), displacement data (IOM), and last but not least the low presence of other actors and partners.

As a reminder, after four consecutive failed rainy seasons over the past two years, communities in parts of southeastern Ethiopia, including the Somali region, have been severely affected by a prolonged drought. In general, in Ethiopia and the rest of the Horn of Africa, climate change is leading to an increase in the frequency, magnitude, and impact of extreme weather events, including droughts. Prior to 1999, little or no rainfall occurred once every five to six years. However, in subsequent years, insufficient precipitation was reported every two to three years. This resulted in significant economic losses, mainly due to the effect on agricultural productivity. In the Somali Region, the population is highly dependent on natural resource-based livelihoods and is very vulnerable to drought. The combination of poor harvests, inflation, and rising prices on international markets has led to an increase in the price of stable foodstuffs, reducing the purchasing power of households and further fueling the crisis. In addition, the effects of the war in Ukraine on energy prices and global food systems threaten to worsen food security in Ethiopia.

With drought destroying crops and decimating livestock, the livelihoods of millions of agro-pastoralists and pastoralists are at risk in the Somali region. More than one million livestock have already died and 3.3 million people in the region, or 59 percent of the population, are in need of food assistance (WFP). Due to poor animal health and low demand, livestock prices have dropped significantly. With livestock playing a crucial role for the population, particularly as a source of livelihoods and nutrition, the drought is exacerbating the food security crisis and worsening malnutrition, with escalating levels of acute malnutrition reported. In the first quarter of 2022, the number of new cases of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) increased by 37% compared to the same period last year (Nutrition Cluster). Prior to this drought, the Somali Region was documented to have the highest percentage of children under five years old suffering from wasting in Ethiopia (21% according to EDHS 2019), and very high infant and neonatal mortality rates. Given that half of all child deaths have malnutrition as an underlying factor (Maternal and Child Nutrition, Lancer 2013), there is growing concern about child mortality. The shortage of water for domestic use and sanitation activities has also exposed the population to water-related diseases. At the same time, more than 183,000 people in the region have migrated in search of water, pasture, or aid, not including the internally displaced persons (IDPs) who are also affected. This has increased the risk of communicable disease transmission, while in the region only 18.2% of children had received all basic vaccines and 48.8% of children had not received any vaccines (EMDHS 2019). The risk is particularly high among children whose immunity has been weakened by malnutrition. The increase in the number of people displaced by the drought also raises the question of their access to basic services, including health care.
