Health Disparities in Somalia

The aim of our project is to provide the shipping costs to send hospital equipment to an under resourced hospital  located in Kalabeyr city, Somalia. The hospital equipment, such as mammograms, CT scans, MRI scans, etc. have been generously donated and now we will focus on the shipping costs. We are committed to improving access to care to this vulnerable population. Health care is a fundamental right and the Somali people deserve to have access to high-quality health care that optimizes their health. It is through this project we aim to improve the access to health in this region. By equipping this hospital, the time it takes for patients to reach an appropriately equipped facility to manage their care is cut down significantly. This hospital gets their highest influx of patients from women and children in that region. The time to reach a hospital is a critical factor in determining health outcomes for women during childbirth. It is due to this passion in improving health outcomes, we seek to create healthier communities and improve upon the current delivery of health services
