Nursing in Somalia.....
« on: February 15, 2007, 07:46:59 PM »
I always wanted to go there for work experience, or open a womens clinic anything to contribute to our homeland. I went to a few hospitals to visit while i went on holiday back in 2003. Hargeisa Hospital was better than i thought as they had experienced doctors from abroad who retired there. I asked a female nurse whats the most common emergency you get everyday. She said Diahorrea, suspected Malaria and dehydration. They lacked some of the medicine they needed to prescribe, or it was running out so they had to use it only within the hospital for serious patients.

I asked who pays your salary or is it voluntary? she said some staff are doing it voluntarily and some are being paid by government, paitents. Fair enough but mashallah to those who are doing voluntary work.

next stop was Burco. The hospital just recieved some donations from UK,USA which went to the mental ward. I saw new equipment such as beds, 2 new operating theatres, clinical equipment. Doctors there were well experienced in their late 40's-50's and some students from abroad for work experience. I watched a routine check of a 5 year old having stomach problems the problem was as the hospital was very full some medical examinations are dealt near the reception where there is no privacy, confidentiality.

I have been back since but from what i hear private clinics are more of an option than government ran hospitals, probably because of the holistic approach people prefer.

thats all for now salams

Nothing better than to do good things for someone else everyday!!
Thanks to those doing voluntary jobs and those sending donations from abroad to promote the health services in our country!!
Really I would like to thank you Hana for the great idea of opening a women's clinic there!

Hello every1...Hana what a good idea to open a women clinic in somalia. I'm a nurse currentlig in Hargeisa doing some volontery work and I can tell u this is the best i have ever done, cauze the one who needs our knowlege/ help most is our people. It gives me a great satisfaction and i'm sad cauze i'm leaving Hg soon to come back to europ...I've been here for 5 months and i can encourage every1 who can come to anywhere in somalia to do it, if not for our people so for getting rewards from God. Allah ayaa jizaai badan ugu badali qofkaas waayo akhirada ayaa ka muhimsan aduunkan. Our country needs us most and u can feel it and se it when u get here, how much u can do. that's what i can say for now.
salaam

As we all know our country needs us and being here is a god feeling but sad at the same time. If we (somalian) want to do something for the country it has to be giving our knowledge to the nye generation. Waxaan u jeeda as we know the money wich is collected in diaspora DON'T always reach to the people it's main to, the corruption is every where so my advice to all somalian that has any education to come and teach schools and universities. Waayo waxbarashada waa ta dhisi karta wadanka iyo dadkaba oo taas loogama baqayo in laga "dhaco" qofka lool. Qofka ayuunbay ku xidhantahay oo isaga ayaa gacanta ku haya knowledgekiisa, and by the way the money is spended very quickly toward knowledge.....How many times have we collected money and it's still not enough. They're so many people who're needy but they never received anything...so sad
take care every1 and each other.

Hi all,
That is right Nimo, teaching and giving knowledge is million times better than giving money and food, and no body needs explanation why is that.
Well, you are talking about visiting somalia and volunteering there, but I think I will be going back totally to somalia in about 1 and half years, to work there and help our people. I hope the situation will be better than it is now when I go back.
Thank you.
Ciise Dheere.

Hi every one,

This is really encouraging to see people who are concerned about Somalia. I do believe it's great that you want to go there to volunteer in the medical field. Specaily , somaliland is one of the most beautiful places in that part of the world and the people are so warm and friendly. The picture portrayed about Somaliland here in the diaspora and the reality are worlds apart. It's a beautiful, safe and welcoming country.

I do believe there is hope for Somalia, that's our only fuel for trying and asking these discussions. As Nimco and Dr.Ciise stated, that hope lies in education. More specifically hope lies in the opportunity for education.

Opportunities are continually increasing and the more people here are like you who are committed to sharing their knowledge the faster it will progress.

There is an old saying that says, "you can count the number of seeds in an apple, but you can't count the number of apples in a seed."

Great teachers have been planting and will continue to plant these seeds throughout Somalia, and there is no counting the number of brilliant students, teachers, and leaders that will be produced by it.

Somalia is a wellspring of willing minds begging to learn all they can. More and more are realizing their dreams, and those that do realize them will give extraordinary efforts in many different arenas to give aid to those who follow them. They will also set a precedent for their friends and family and especially their children to live up to.

We all have the potential to make contributions similar to this and empower our colleagues, brothers and sisters and enable them to shine and make a difference.

let's keep the discussion going!
Geeljire .
