Mobile Clinic Program:
Mobile Clinic program has achieved great success in helping displaced persons and refugees in the Somali refugee camps.
Beneficiaries until now:
13,320 Sick, More than the women and child & old people, and our program working until now.
For years EACI provided mobile clinic to the IDP camps in and around Mogadishu. This is because we have no enough resources to allocate permanent health posts for each and every IDP camp. During the our clinic support we have recorded various communicable diseases including epidemics of measles, malaria and cerebrovascular meningitis; malnutrition; mental health for example anxiety, depression and post-traumatic disorders; reproductive health, for example, sexual harassment, rape, unwanted pregnancies and abortions. We provide advice, where applicable and emergency referral when possible.
During the 2014 famine, we have supported many mothers who have lost most of their children to the hunger and the thirst they endured. many of these mothers suffered what doctors called critical incident stress syndrome.
Thus, We appeal to the Somali government, our Partners and the international donors to donate so that we can set up permanent health clinics for the Mogadishu IDPs and beyond.
