RENAD’S STRUGGLE FOR LIFE


In Yemen, where 22 million people need help because of the civil war, the children at hunger limits are struggling to survive. One of them, the 5.5-month-old Renad is trying to cling to life in the fine line between life and death at the children's hospital in Mukalla, the capital of Hadramut province.

In a narrow room, the screams of the babies that are on serums, either on haphazard beds or on their mothers' limbs are echoing. Under the shadow of the civil war, health services have almost stopped in Yemen. One of the few hospitals where poor people can get free health services is Mukalla Women's and Maternity Hospital at the capital of Hadramud province. The only full-service state hospital in the region is Mukalla Maternity Hospital. And The hospital is trying to serve almost 9 million Yemenis with 3 neighboring states.

There are only 7 beds in the hospital in which the annexed building of its has been damaged since 2015. Children who are under emergency treatment have to be discharged before they are fully healed. One of the most severe medical cases dispatched from rural areas, Renad'Al Amal, a 5.5-year-old child, is trying to hold on to life with the serum attached to her tiny body. Dr. Abha Ba Awedan, the head physician of the hospital, stated that children in this condition need urgent special needs. The head physician also remarks that they are unable to service to the children who are at ricsk of that due to malnutrition.

Levent Recep Ozturk who is Yemen Country Coordinator of the International Blue Crescent (IBC) Relief and Development Foundation highlights how in difficult conditions the hospital tries to serve people. The International Blue Crescent (IBC) works under the Yemen Aid Program to support the little Renad and the ones who share her fate.
