MOGADISHU， April 23 (Xinhua) -- Humanitarian agencies have increased efforts to save lives and livelihoods in the areas hardest hit by the drought in Somalia， the UN said on Saturday.
The UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in its humanitarian report that relief agencies are prioritizing the provision of Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)， food security and livelihoods， health and nutrition.
""They are also prioritizing keeping children in schools and protecting them from family separation， violence and abuse，"" OCHA said.
""Today， 95 national and international humanitarian organizations are operational in Puntland and Somaliland. However， they are unable to scale up response to the level of needs because of lack of adequate funding. Funding across all clusters is low and inadequate to boost response，"" it added.
The UN agency said timely funding is critical to enable partners significantly scale up response to prevent the situation from deteriorating further.
The report comes after humanitarian agencies working in Somalia on March 31 launched a humanitarian appeal， seeking 105 million U.S. dollars to save lives of more than 1 million Somalis in drought-affected areas.
An estimated 1.7 million people， or nearly 40 percent of the 4.6 million people living in these areas， are in need of humanitarian assistance and livelihood support.
Of these， 1.3 million people are at risk of slipping into acute food insecurity if they do not receive assistance. Nearly 385，000 people already face acute food insecurity.
According to OCHA report， health and nutrition partners have deployed joint mobile health and nutrition teams to pastoral and other hard-to-reach groups.
The report says malnourished children are receiving essential primary health care interventions， including emergency immunization.
""Health partners have delivered health care services to more than 30，000 people， including Internally Displaced People (IDPs) living in drought-affected areas in Puntland and Somaliland，"" it said.
According to the report， between January and March， more than 11，000 acutely malnourished children were admitted into outpatient therapeutic and targeted supplementary feeding programmes.
""Mobile health clinics and hygiene promotion activities are also ongoing in the affected areas. In Puntland， partners have pre-positioned nutrition supplies， including 500 cartons of high energy biscuits.""
In Somaliland， the report says 15，000 cartons of ready-to-use therapeutic food have been provided to the Ministry of Health for wider distribution.
More than 245，000 people (79 percent of the monthly target) had been reached with improved access to food and safety net-related interventions. Nearly 90，000 people were also reached with activities aimed at building livelihoods.
CAPE TOWN， April 29 (Xinhua) -- A court ruling setting aside a decision to drop corruption charges against President Regis Zuma should not be used by any in the society to infer any culpability in any crime or offence by the president， the ruling African National Congress (ANC) said on Friday.
""Today's judgment was solely a judicial review of an administrative action taken by the NPA (National Prosecuting Authority) as allowed for in our law，"" the ANC said after the High Court in Pretoria set aside a 2009 decision by NPA former head Mokotedi Mpshe to drop corruption charges against Zuma.
The decision by Mpshe was irrational as he acted ""alone and impulsively""， the court ruled.
The ANC has noted the judgment handed down by a full bench of the court， the party's national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said.
""It is important to note that the Court did not deal with the merits of any allegations against President Zuma nor did it make any finding declaring guilt on any matter against President Zuma，"" Kodwa said.
The ANC has consistently supported the legal maxim that justice delayed is justice denied， he said.
This matter has dragged on for close to a decade and the ANC is pleased therefore that it now appears closer to resolution， seven years since the NPA decision， said Kodwa.
""We once again reaffirm our full confidence in our legal system with its adequate and extensive checks and balances designed to protect and promote accountability and transparency，"" he said.
In Friday's ruling， the court ordered the NPA and its current head Shaun Abrahams to decide if it will recharge Zuma with the original 783 counts of corruption.
This refers to corruption charges against Zuma relating to the procurement of arms worth billions of rand in 1999.
Zuma's legal team had contested the charges through confidential representations submitted to the NPA in February 2009.
