THET’s Country Director, Nura Ibrahim, and the team have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 response in Somalia/Somaliland. Following requests from the Ministry of Health and Development and in partnership with King’s College London, the team have worked to procure vital PPE as well as acting as a link between teams to provide guidance and training on COVID-19 diagnosis, case management and infection, prevention and control.
The much needed equipment, including thermometers, masks and gloves, has now been distributed to treatment centres to enable health workers to stay safe and save lives.
“My Name is Dr. Manal Ahmed Gas. I am a medical coordinator in Daryeel Hospital Treatment Centre for COVID-19 in Hargeisa. We really appreciate the PPE donations from THET/Kings. This valuable donotation came at the right time and gives us the protection and confidence to do our work.”
