Founded in August 2017, Kalkaal Hospital Foundation is the charitable nonprofit wing of the Kalkaal Specialty Hospital located in Mogadishu, Somalia. It was formed specifically to support the furtherance of the Kalkaal Specialty Hospital’s mission of meeting the changing healthcare needs in Somalia by providing quality healthcare services to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Through the foundation, the hospital is also able to meet its Corporate Social Responsibility. The foundation’s location within the heart of Mogadishu -which is the main civic Centre and capital of Somalia, enables the foundation to effectively interact with over 3million people within the capital and more other millions within the larger Somalia. The foundation and the hospital are governed by the same Board of Trustees, made up of local leaders committed to the importance of philanthropy and fulfilling the hospital’s mission.
In over 25 years, Somalia has suffered from a civil war that has left many institutions and structures shattered. This has also caused lots of poverty among the common man, making them unable to afford even the basic human needs such as health and education. Often times people spent most of their time in fear of tomorrow and could hardly farm or engage in any economical activities. This has left many people economically challenged and less educated. Thus the need to take closer inexpensive or free services to the people through medical/surgical missions. The World Health Organization reported that access to, and quality of health care in Somalia remains inadequate to meet the needs of the population. In addition, health services are unequally distributed, with vast areas completely deprived of basic health care. There are only 39 qualified doctors per one million inhabitants, mainly concentrated in urban areas and only 141 qualified midwives, It further recommended that there is an urgent need to gradually increase access to basic health care by expanding and scaling up primary health care, targeting the most under-served areas.
