With the ongoing food crisis across East Africa, we’re working hard to support communities in desperate need of support.
Just one of our many projects is our mobile health outreach clinic in Somalia.
Working at a camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the capital, Mogadishu, we’ve been able to support over 5,000 people.
In this camp, large numbers of people live in crowded conditions and have no access to basic healthcare.
The majority of our patients were suffering from skin infections, malnutrition and malaria In addition, a number of breastfeeding women were suffering from long-term anaemia.
Alhamdulillah, well-trained medical doctors and nurses have been working in the camps to provide much-needed primary healthcare to the community.
Just one of the people we’ve been helping is Maryama:
When I first visited the mobile clinic team, I was suffering from malaria. It had made my body very weak.
The team then advised a suitable medical treatment for me.
Before [visiting the clinic], I couldn’t walk or breastfeed my baby but now I am healthy and well.
Thank you to the donors and the Islamic Relief Somalia team for your support.
Of course, none of our work would be possible without your generous support. So from Maryama and everyone at Islamic Relief, thank you for helping us to save lives.
You are life-savers.
