The missions are routine, often based on the availability of resources.

The foundation organizes camps where quality health care services are provided to the community at no cost. The missions are routine, often based on the availability of resources. During our interaction with the community we often identify the immediate concern -which we subsequently address through various projects.

Current projects running in this program include:

Cleft lip and cleft palate surgical mission. Fistula surgical mission. Vaccination such as HBV; In this project, a team of Smile Train Surgeons from Kenya join us in Somalia to offer free surgical services to patients with Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate. The missions are quarterly.

Community Outreach

The foundation gets down to the grassroots to engage in improvement of health through interaction with the community and getting to know their concerns, which is later addressed in subsequent programs. This medium is also used for sensitization.

Current projects running in this program include:

a) Community Diagnosis

This involves sending a team of medics and paramedics to the community to find out the health concerns. The process involves focus group discussions, use of questionnaires and involvement of local leaders. These visits are done quarterly.

b) Health Education

In this project, both general and target health messages are designed for the community to address current or most urgent health needs. The messages are routine and through various media such as charts, focus group discussions, telephone messaging, radio and TV stations. The project is a continual process.

Capacity Building For The Kalkaal Specialty Hospital

With a strong health care team, the foundation can always have a strong back up to provide the quality health care it promises the community. This involves training, and placements abroad.

a) CME Trainings

Continuous Medical Education (CME) is often organized for both the medical staff of our chief medical personnel provider, the Kalkaal Specialty Hospital, and volunteers we use in many of our programs. Topics selected are from the current medical concerns of the country.

b) Medical Placements

This involves sending staff of the hospital to trainings and placements in more equipped and advanced hospital settings, and more exposure for skills transfer.

Medical Relief Response

The foundation has always been at the epicenter of free health care services to the victims of the unfortunate bomb blasts and violence in Somalia. This particular program is one of the most challenging as it involves a lot of information gathering and risk taking to be able to rescue and treat victims of attacks.

We have a medical ambulance and a standby relief response team to help in the cause.

Most responses are collaborative with other agencies of the same cause.
