Hear from One of the Midwives that Your Contributions Helped

Anisa AbdillahiAnisa Mohamed Abdillahi, twenty-three years old, is an Edna Adan University Hospital Post-Basic Midwifery student who has already completed the basic midwife training. She is originally from Burco in the Togdheer region, which is Somaliland’s second largest city, located around 180 km, or 111 miles, east of Hargeisa and the hospital. She has already delivered 35 babies, including a set of twins! Although she feels that midwifery can be a difficult profession, she enjoys what she does and relishes the opportunity help mothers minimize risks during pregnancy and childbirth. After she graduates from the Edna Adan University, she intends to stay in Hargeisa for the stronger job market, the opportunity to continue her studies, and most importantly, to help the women and children of Somaliland.

Please help us to train more amazing midwives like Anisa! Any contribution that you can make will help us to train additional midwives and provide everything that a future midwife needs in order to complete her studies at Edna Adan University Hospital.

We cannot fully express our gratitude but hopefully the great strides that the Edna Adan University Hospital is taking to ensure that the women of Somaliland have better health outcomes will be a great testament of our thankfulness

Join us in making #GivingTuesday 2015 the most generous day of the year!

Graduate Ceremony for 40 Community Midwives

On June 11, Edna Adan presided over a ceremony to present “midwife kits” to 40 recent graduates of the Community Midwife program. The midwife kits were generously donated by Direct Relief, a USA nonprofit organization. The kits contained infant and adult resuscitation sets, blood pressure cuff, various scissors and other instruments, kidney dishes, a baby scale and numerous other items. The kits are particularly crucial to the many midwives who are posted to remote regions of Somaliland and have no access to these items.  Edna is aiming to train 1000 midwives.

The ceremony was held at the Red Sea Cultural Center and was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Health and UNFPA.

We would like to share some of our photos from the ceremony:
