Gaarsiinta daryeel caafimaad dadka ku nool bartamaha Soomaaliya

Qeybo ka mid ah koonfurta iyo bartamaha Soomaaliya ayaa xilligan waxaa saameeyay fatahaad, taasoo ka kexeysay boqollaal kun oo ruux guryahooda isla markaana dhalisay dhibaato bini'aadannimo. Laakiin xitaa fatahaadda kahor, dadka ku nool Soomaaliya waxay ahaayeen kuwo aad u nugul kaddib sannado badan oo ay la daala-dhacayeen dagaallo daba dheeraaday.

Gaalkacyo, oo ah magaalo ku taal bartamaha dalka Soomaaliya, waxay hoy u tahay dad aad u tiro badan oo gudaha ku soo barakacay kuwaasoo ka soo cararay rabshadaha, abaarta iyo khataraha kale ee ay sababtay cimillada dalka ka jirta. Magaalada waxay kaloo ay martigelisaa dadka muhaajiriinta ah iyo qoxootiga, iyo sidoo kale dadka ka soo jeeda deegaanka Soomaalida ee dalka deriska ah ee Itoobiya, kuwaasoo raadinaya daryeel caafimaad oo wanaagsan.

Isbitaalka Gobolka Mudug waa isbitaalka ugu weyn ee magaalada Gaalkayo, kaasoo u adeega nus milyan qof. Hay’adda MSF waxaay taageereysay isbitaalka illaa bishii May 2017. Maanta, waxaan ka hawlgalnaa qeybta gargaarka deg-degga ah, waxaan daryeel nafaqo siinnaa carruurta nafaqo-xumada hayso, waxaan daweynaa dadka qaba cudurka qaaxada, waxaan caawimaad siinnaa haweenka uurka leh. Waxaan kaloo maamulnaa xarumaha caafimaadka guur-guura. Kuwani waa qaar ka mid ah sheekooyinka bukaannada ay MSF caawiso ee Galkacyo.

Bringing medical care to people in central Somalia

Southern and central parts of Somalia are currently affected by floods that have forced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes and triggered a humanitarian crisis. But even before the floods, people in Somalia were very vulnerable following decades of protracted conflict.

Galkayo, a town in central Somalia, hosts a large number of internally displaced people who have fled violence, drought and other climate hazards within the country. It also hosts migrants and refugees, as well as people from the neighboring Somali region of Ethiopia seeking better healthcare.

Mudug Regional Hospital is the city´s main referral hospital, serving some half a million people. MSF has been supporting this facility since May 2017. Today, we work in the emergency room, care for malnourished children, treat people with tuberculosis, assist women with complicated pregnancies and run mobile clinics. These are some of the stories of MSF’s patients in Galkayo.
