UNSOS has been providing full rations of nutritionally balanced food (fresh food and ration packs), with a total calorific intake of 4,500 calories per person per day, since August 2009. The delivery of this support ensures the good health and well-being of AMISOM troops throughout the mission area.
Currently, an average of 1,300 Metric Tons (MT) of rations are distributed to AMISOM troops every month in 54 locations throughout the mission area. This is done from two strategically located warehouses (Mogadishu and Mombasa).
Additionally, 250 MT of rations supplements are delivered to various SNA logistics positions. AMISOM personnel are being trained in healthy nutrition and food-handling procedures, thus ensuring the number of sick due to food related issues remains at minimum level.
