MSF CLOSES ITS MEDICAL PROJECT IN THE HAWA ABDI AREA
« on: October 02, 2010, 10:38:48 PM »
MSF teams closed their medical project in Somalia’s Hawa Abdi area, on the outskirts of the capital Mogadishu, in early September, marking the end of the collaboration between Dr Hawa Abdi and MSF. For the past three years, MSF had been running an outpatients department, a paediatric inpatients department, a cholera and diarrhoea treatment centre and a nutrition programme in the Hawa Abdi area as well as distributing clean water and items such as blankets and plastic sheeting. MSF acknowledges the support of the Hawa Abdi family during the three years of working together.

Over the three years of performing life saving activities MSF has admitted over 8,000 children to the in patient paediatric department and 5,593 children have been admitted to the intensive feeding program.  Between 2007 and 2010, MSF gave consultations and free medication to 330,140 people and treated 29,027 malnourished children under the age of five in the ambulatory feeding program in the area between Mogadishu and Afgooye. In late August 2009, following an increase in measles cases in the area, MSF teams carried out a mass vaccination campaign, vaccinating a total of 31,785 children. In the course of the three years, MSF distributed more than 180 million litres of clean water and gave items such as plastic sheeting and blankets to over 50,000 households.

MSF teams are continuing to support the community hospital in Afgooye where maternity and in patient services, out patient consultations and an ambulatory feeding program for children under five years old are provided.  MSF is closely monitoring the health situation in the area and remains determined to continue life saving services in the Afgooye Corridor.
