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

Maryan Ali Ahmed and her daughters took two days to reach the hospital. Ikraan Abdiaziz (right), almost two years old, was severely malnourished. Two weeks into the treatment program, Ikraan has regained her liveliness. In fact, she is leaving the ICU for the the next phase of the treatment where she will be under a lighter care regimen.

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."
