WHO sets up a field hospital in Xudur

Postby TheblueNwhite » Sat Jun 16, 2012 7:55 pm

Amino Mahamoud has been waiting to see a doctor for the past 10 years — ever since a stray bullet got lodged in her left buttock. It has been there ever since.

“When I was shot I didn’t have any money and the main hospital was on fire so I couldn’t see a doctor,” she told AFP in the capital of central Somalia’s Bakool region.

Mahamoud was hit by a stray bullet in the capital Mogadishu. Once she was well enough to travel she returned home to Hudur, but the injury has left her incapacitated.

“I feel ill after five minutes of walking and I feel pain all the time.”

Bakool has had no hospitals for the past three-and-a-half years when Al-Qaeda affiliated Shebab insurgents closed down a maternity clinic that had been set up in 2008. But that is about to change.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is setting up a field hospital in Hudur, after opening similar facilities in Baidoa to the south, in Dolow near the borders with Kenya and Ethiopia and in Galkayo farther north, as they try to bring health care to people across Somalia.

“This is the first time there’s been a doctor here,” 76-year-old Mahamoud said as she queued with over 100 others to finally see a health professional.

The building they’ve chosen was once the Mother and Child health facility.

“The last delivery was the wife of the Al-Shebab leader. A boy,” Fatuma Abdullahi, a midwife who worked at the clinic when it opened, told AFP. “He was born at night, the next morning the International Medical Corps was kicked out.”

The IMC had been providing the facility with medicine and equipment. New mothers were given food, medicine, blankets and mosquito nets. “When IMC left, the stores were looted by Al Shebab,” Abdullahi said.

“We had to do deliveries at home because of the security problems, and because of the lack of clean things here.”

Since then, only emergency deliveries have taken place at the clinic.

The Horn of Africa nation has been battered by two decades of conflict that claimed 400,000 lives since the 1991 ouster of former president Mohamed Siad Barre. Rival militia forces, ruthless warlords and Islamist fighters emerged in the power vacuum, each controlling their own limited fiefdoms.

While the Shebab still holds large parts of southern Somalia, African Union troops, forces of the embattled western-backed government and Ethiopian soldiers have clawed back several key bases in recent months, forcing the insurgents out of Hudur on April 22.

The Shebab had expelled all aid agencies that had been working in the region, and although they still control the roads which provide access to Hudur, the regional capital itself is now relatively safe.

– A message of hope –

WHO has been the first in, flying in two tonnes of equipment, three surgeons and an anaesthetist. Former store rooms at the heath facilty are quickly being turned into operating theatres, electricity has been restored, and patients can finally see a doctor.

First through the door was 71-year-old Mohamed Idoor, a former government engineer. Complaining of pains in his legs, haemorrhoids and an allergy, he was told he also needs a prostrate operation, one that can’t be performed here at the moment but that might be possible in six months time, when more specialist equipment arrives.

“I’m very, very happy. I think I’ll be OK now,” he told AFP.

Leading the team of doctors is Omar Saleh, the emergency coordinator for WHO in Somalia. “What happened after the famine is that everybody focused on Mogadishu, which is important yes … but what about the other areas?” he asked after performing surgery on a seven-year-old who split open his head when the donkey cart he was riding on overturned.

“What we are doing is sending the community a message of hope that we are here to help, they are not neglected, they are not forgotten because they are not in Mogadishu,” Saleh told AFP.

Tens of thousands of people fled their home towns last summer after a bruising drought saw crops fail and livestock die in huge numbers. Many streamed into neighbouring Ethiopia and Kenya, others headed to the Somali capital.

Saleh now wants other aid agencies to set up in Hudur, whose 40-50,000 residents — down about 20,000 since the Shebab came in — desperately need help.

“We have to start targeting the people where they are. The more you target Mogadishu, the more you encourage the displaced to go to Mogadishu. The more you target the people in their place, the more they stay.”

With word spreading around the region, many more people are expected to turn up at the clinic in the coming days.

“There’s 150 to 200 people here,” said Saleh. “Tomorrow there will be more.”

Some $70,000 of equipment and medicine was flown into the town, and it will cost around $20,000 to run the clinic every month. But for many patients, the hospital didn’t arrive in time.

“For three or four out of every 10 patients that I’ve seen it is too late, it is too late to operate on them,” Saleh said.

Sabti, June 16, 2012 (HOL) — Hay'adda caafimaadka adduunka ee WHO ayaa dib u furtay xaruntii caafimaadka degmada Xudur ee gobolka Bay, kaddib markii laga saaray xoogaggii Al-shabaab ee ka talinayay muddo afarta sano ku dhow.

Degmada Xudur oo ah xarunta gobolka Bakool ayaan lahayn xarun caafimaad oo dadka lagu daweeyo, iyadoo la sheegay in cudurradu ay ahaayeen kuwo si xowli ah u fidayay, sidoo kalena degmadaas aysan gaari jirin agabka caafimaad.

Shan goobood oo bukaan eegtooyin ah oo ka furnaa degmada ayaa u xirmay dawo la'aan soo food-saartay muddadii ay Al-shabaab ka talinaysay, waxaana goobahaas ka mid ah kuwo lagu umuliyo hooyooyinka uurka leh.

Toddobaadkan ayay wax walba isbedeleen waxaana dib loo furay xarun cusub oo caafimaad oo leh saallo qalliin iyo farmashiye ay dawooyin fara badan yaallaan, iyadoo howsha xaruntan caafimaad ay tahay mid lacag la'aan ah, waxaana bukaanka la siinayaa dawo, waxaana furintaanka xaruntan uu imaanaa iyadoo laga joogo laba bilood oo keliya markii degmadaas laga saaray Al-shabaab.

Hay'adda WHO ayaa waxay ka mid ahayd hay'adihii ay Al-shabaab ka joojisay inay ka howlgalaan goobaha ay ka taliso, waxaase xayiraaddaas ay burburtay markii ay ciidammo gaaraya 2,000 oo askari oo isugu jira ciidamada Itoobiya iyo kuwa DKMG ah ay weerareen degmadaas kana saareen Al-shabaab.

Xoogagga Al-shabaab ayaa waxay hadda ku sugan yihiin meel 12-mayl ka durugsan degmada Xudur, waxaana degmada ku nool dad lagu qiyaasay 400,000, kuwaasoo ay doonayso WHO inay u sameyso baaritaanno caafimaad iyo daweyn lacag la'aan ah.

"Waxaan billownay daweynta dadka meel walba oo ay joogaan," ayuu yiri Dr Cumar Saalax oo dib ugu maalgeliyay xaruntan caafimaad lacag gaaraysa 70,000 oo doollarka Mareykanka ah.

Maalin walba 9:00 aroornimo waxaa buuxiya xarunta caafimaad dad fara badan oo doonaya in baaritaanno iyo daweyn loo sameeyo. Iyadoo dadka qaarkood ay xilli hore ee habeenkii ah yimaadaan halkaas.

"Anigu lama kulmin dhaqtar muddo 10-sano ah," ayay tiri Caasho Xasan oo 39-jir ah kana mid ahayd dadkii xaruntaas caafimaad u yimid baarista, waxaana hayay qufac ama hargab.

Sidoo kale, dadkii goobtaas ku sugnaa waxaa ka mid ahayd, Aamino Maxamuud oo 76-jir ah, iyadoo sheegtay inaysan wax dhakhtar ah la kulmin tan iyo markii ay ku dhacday xabbad wiifto ah, waxayna sheegtay in xabbadu ay muddadaas dheer ku haysay xanuun daran.

"Dalka oo dhan waa la burburiyay, waxaana ka taliya kooxo hubeysan oo kala duwan sida Al-shabaab, sidaa daraadeed waan weynay wax na caawiya, kama jiro dhakhtar illaa hadda," ayay tiri Aamina.

Xarunta caafimaad ayaa waxay maalintii ugu horreysay daweysay 100 bukaan oo toddoba ka mid ah lagu sameeyay qalliin, kuwaasoo uu ku jiray wiil yar oo ka dhacay gaari-dameer iyo oday oo dhabarka ka xanuunsanaa.

Ugu dambeyn, Dr. Cumar Saalax ayaa sheegay in furitaanka xaruntan ay fursad u tahay dadka ku nool degmada Xudur oo markii hore loo qaadi jiray xanuunkooda Muqdisho, wuxuuna sheegay in hay'adaha ay tusayaan in laga shaqeyn karo meel ka baxsan Muqdisho.

True walaahi laakiin sxb I want to gain weight I hate skinny.

Ethiopia marka aan tagay hilib Ari aan ku quraacanaayay saxan baasto AMA saxan bariis na waan ku qadeeynaayay laakiin wax mataraayaan.

Hal McDonald cheeseburger that costs only 99p barootiinkiisa iyo nafaqadiisa wuxuu u qalmaa 10 saxan oo bariis ah iyo 10 baasto iyo suugo.

1 McDonald 99p cheeseburger = 10 saxan baasto + 10 saxan bariis.

Cuntada Africa :down: nafaqo ma leh
