The young legend

Now, more than 1000 + health care students of amoud college of health science and a community of 10,000, of 9600 Households in three areas around Borama ( Hayayaabe, DarayMacane, and lastly Sh. Osman) has got an ambulance service. and soon will pass to the University. and for the first time insha allah; Paramedic Trainings will be established by Amoud College of Health Sciences Insha Allah.

In More than 800 weeks of Amoud community health outreach, here are some of my experiance. we use to round different sectors in Borama. I have witnessed an old man with his family living in a hut who has developed several days ago an acute stroke, his wife, and daughter were sitting next to him. and he needed an ICU or emergency care. his BP was high and he was only on aspirin. we tried to take him to the refferral hospital but no one to come and no facility. During one of the days of Diarrhea outbreak. We have seen a mother who had diarrhea for 3 days and sorrounded by her children. no one else was in the home, she couldnt go out of them, and the husband was not there! she was in shock! unstable vitals. severely dehydrated. me and my classmate Najma had resuscitated her with an iv fluids one of us have been acting as stander for the fluids and we gave her quickly. again no one to call for help. we took a ticktok or Bajaj to the hospital admit her by our self and start her management. Like My stories any medical student who use to go specific area use to see these challenges and we use to report them.

Nov 2018, It was the birthday of my friend Michaela, a friend of somaliland people, and author, political analyzer and who comes for an observer for Somaliland Presidential Elections. She has supported Ultrasound Machine to be part of the reduction of somaliland maternal mortality rate. she donated medicines at edna adam hospital. she liked to help her birthday this time for Amoud Community Health outreach. She said any one who s coming please donate to this ambulance.
Here are some of the people who donated Sophia Sumburane, Simon Hengel, Anne Matuschek, Yasmina Hamid, Eva Werner, Melanie Arndt, Petra Balke- Bresser, Norbert Hiller, Nikola Richter, Markus Wilmsmann, Maha Yab , Heike Hellebrand, Christiane Frohmann, Adeline Annecke, Patrice Poutrus, Bettina Wuttig, Ulrike Herrmann, Anna Hasselkus, Susanne Muller, Daniel Haufler, Josef Muller, Marlene Mayer , Heike Pohl, Karen Margolis, and the Fine Future Foundations.
All these names are the people who had participated the donations of this ambulance. I would like to mention separately Hadia Medical Swiss Group – my friend Khadija and his husband Hassan Aydid, Bashir Subaan and Walter Thoni – who has facilitated finding the ambulance in Dubai and handled the shipment.
It wont only work for community outreachs, but as well it will be a national asset and it will be part of being preparedness for natural disasters.

“This ambulance will hopefully be the first step towards a paramedic service in the Awdal region. Hopefully it will soon reach the people all over Somaliland, from Burco to Borama, from North to South of this wonderful country and its citizens.
Somaliland, ha nolato!” by Michaela Maria Mueller

Oral Health Campiangn in Dacar-Budhuq, laasa-dacawo and Abdaal

Our passion was to help those with greatest obstacles to basic oral healthcare. As final year dental students of Amoud University and senior doctors, we have resolved a patient’s acute pain and pathology and set them on a new path to healing and recovery in one visit. We are both humbled and grateful for the opportunity to help in outreach clinics in Dacar-Budhuq, laasa-dacawo and Abdaal villages.

During our community outreach in above villages, we have received around 400 patient with different complains. Really, it was challenging and hard work but it has finished nicely.

As health science students, We have the best Universty all across the country. We are lucky to have got trained at the Amoud College of Health Sciences. It has greatly enabled students to get connected to their community and carry out regular weekly voluntary health outreach programs .

Oral health Campiangn in Baki village

We, the final year students of the school of dentistry together with Senior doctors and internship doctors, we carried out oral health campaign in Baki Village.

We started our journey early in the morning Borama to Baki. After long time with 18km rough road, finally after 3 hours, we reached Baki.

The health services we provide include: Extraction, scaling and filling teeth

About 10 o’clock in the morning, we started our campaign. We divided into teams such as: department of extraction, department of scaling and department of filling teeth. Also we there were another group such as: group for drug prescription, group for history taking and group for examination and consulting.

We received about 130 patients during our Campiangn. It took 6 hours.
We finished our campaign nicely.

The most point we did it was that we oriented the people some disease related oral.
We knew that most of country side people neglected their oral. We taught them, how they clean their oral and how prevent diseases.

Finally, i would like to thanks Allah who allowed us every thing we did it. Second, I would like to thanks dean of faculty of dentistry of Amoud University Dr.Avdirashid and also Dr Jimcale, Dr.Shukri, Dr.Nicmo and Dr.Hassan Aways.

Also I would to sent thanks from here Vice Mayor in Baki. He was kindly person and welcomed us nicely and also I would like to thanks MCH workers. They worked us perfectly.
