Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Somalia has one of the highest mortality and morbidity rates in the world. According to Save the children 2013 report, Somalia was the second toughest place to be a mother, after Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Only 9% of mothers have births attended by skilled health personnel. The situation has been exacerbated by the civil war that had led to the breakdown of the available and remaining health institution. However, after the KDF takeover of Kismayu normality has been restored.
DIAL Africa has been supporting Kismayu General Hospital Maternal Child Health (MCH/OPD) department. DIAL Africa has a Doctor, several nurses and hospital staff who do offer the health services. However service delivery is restricted by lack of quality equipment. In addition current MCH/OPD DIAL Africa is in the process of establishing another MCH in Farjano village.
