SomaliaSomalia: Providing Humanitarian Aid on al-Shabab’s Turf

Listen to an interview with MSF’s Duncan Mclean on PRI’s The World - the topic was the Humanitarian Negotiations Revealed book in the context of Somalia.

Duncan Mclean helps manage the group’s work in Somalia. He says that the hospital Doctors Without Borders operates on the outskirts of Mogadishu treats any injured individual, including al-Shabab fighters.

I am a Kenya[n] currently studying in Canada. When my mother was first diagnosed with HIV/Aids in 2002, we all went into denial. The stigma and discrimination was rampant and the ARV’s were too expensive for us.

Thanks to MSF, my mother is alive, beautiful, strong, how can I best describe it! Alive and Kicking. There was not only the treatment, there was the nutrition and support group services.

My mother is now a community health worker in Mathare slum. MSF runs a clinic near this slum called the Blue House clinic, and yes, you thought right, it is painted blue.

The end, in some circumstances, justifies the end.

Happy 40th anniversary MSF.
