Troop Welfare

The Security Council, through its Resolution 1863 (2009) and subsequent resolutions mandated UNSOA to raise AMISOM to United Nations peacekeeping standards.

The welfare project was developed in 2011 and aims to address shortfalls in the support provided to AMISOM, mainly in the functional areas of supply, medical services and CITS.

AMISOM TCCs have limited capacity to self-sustain, as most of their resources have been provided by bilateral donors, and military contingents have limited technical expertise to carry out complex logistic operations.

Therefore UNSOA, through the Trust Fund, has provided logistical support amounting to $6.4 million for the acquisition of engineering and communication equipment, accommodation vehicles, furniture and fixtures.
