Description : ICRC website, 23.02.18, Photo gallery Somalia: How to care for the dead in the aftermath of disaster: “The training, the first ever to take place in Somalia, brought together 30 representatives from the Somali Red Crescent Society, Aamin ambulance, medical staff from Madina and Keysaney hospitals, and other first responders to learn best practices for handling human remains. Proper and dignified management of the dead in conflicts and disasters is a key component of the ICRC's work in Somalia. How corpses are dealt with can have a profound impact and long-lasting effect on the mental health of survivors and the community.
These photos show what went on during the three-day workshop that took place in Madina hospital.”
