"Somalia: Life-saving assistance to people affected by the drought

Arbay Ahmed Siyid’s son is barely two years old. He has been in the ICU phase of the treatment for the past three weeks. Through a careful administered dose of therapeutic milk, he has been regaining his health. Despite the good progress, Arbay Ahmed, worries of her other six children she left back home in Jamame.

More and more mothers are streaming into hospitals seeking life-saving treatment for their sick children. In Kismayo General Hospital, where one of the few stabilization centers in the country is located, admissions of children under the age of five have been on the rise since October last year. A similar center located in Baidoa Regional Hospital, in Somalia's central Bay region, is witnessing a similar trend. These two centers strictly cater for critical cases."
