Description : The number of war-wounded treated at the two main referral hospitals in the Somali capital Mogadishu sharply increased last year. More than 6000 such patients were admitted to Medina and Keysaney hospitals in 2010 compared to 5000 in 2009 and around 2800 in 2008. More than a third of the wounded (2300) were women and children, caught in the fierce fighting between the Transitional Federal Government forces, backed by the African Union, and armed groups such as Al-Shabab. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been present on a permanent basis since 1992, providing emergency aid to those affected by armed conflict and natural disasters as well as restoring and improving the livelihoods of those made vulnerable by the humanitarian crisis.
