In a bid to alleviate the suffering of the vulnerable in times of adversities, Qatar Charity built health centre in Somalia.
The first lady of Somalia, Saynab Abdi Moallim commended the initiative and the immediate response to the need of the people.
She stated this in a speech she delivered during the inaugural ceremony of the health centre built by Qatar Charity (QC) in the Galmudug State of Somalia,.
Dr Abdullah Abdul-Qader Rafi, a doctor at the centre, explained that the centre would reduce the risks that residents were exposed to due to the absence of a health centre in the city.
He stated that the nearest health centre was about 256 kilometers from the city, which exposes patients and pregnant women to dangers due to its proximity, rugged roads, and lack of facilities.
The centre includes a reproductive health department, an emergency department, a laboratory, a vaccination room, a feeding room, a pharmacy, in addition to doctors’ rooms and administrative offices.
The centre is expected to provide integrated health services, such as first aid for emergency cases, maternal and child care, feeding and vaccination services for children and pregnant women, health awareness and education, medicines, and treatment.
