Qatar Charity Implements Health Projects in Somalia

hostipalQatar Charity (QC) has implemented a number of health projects in Somalia during the first half of 2018.

The implementation has come as part of its development intervention in the field of health, which is based on the integration of the curative and preventive aspects, QC has said in a statement.

QC’s health interventions focus on countries that lack sufficient primary health care services and suffer from the spread of infectious and endemic diseases and high mortality rates, especially child and maternal mortality.

Qatar Charity implements various health and medical projects in Somalia, such as building health clinics, organising medical caravans for disaster relief and providing first aid, giving priority to the neediest areas and people.

The organisation implements these health projects in co-ordination with the Somali Ministry of Health and Mogadishu University.

Qatar Charity is also working on the construction of many health centres and clinics.

Other five multi-service centres will be constructed in Kismayo, Baidoa, Dusamareb and Middle Shabelle during the second half of this year until the beginning of next year.

In July and August, medical convoys will be despatched to camps in capital Mogadishu, which will provide free health services for the displaced.

Each convoy is expected to provide medical services and consultations for 80 people, in addition to holding regular meetings with the displaced to provide instructions on public health and health education.

Somalia suffers a civil war that has cause 20 thousand dead and around a million displaced.
