The effects of drought, flooding and displacement in addition to the fighting have left approximately half of the population dependent on outside support for their survival and livelihoods support.

In Somalia, we support all in patient units at Galkayo Hospital, a public hospital located in the south of Galkayo-Galmudug.

We offer services ranging from general health care to pediatric services to stabilization center for severely malnourished children, while also providing care for patients with infectious diseases like measles and whooping cough.
