Hormuud foundation donates 4000 litres of petrol to Madina Hospital

February 21, 2014

In reply to an early request from Madina hospital, Hormuud foundation, the social responsibility and development section of Hormuud telecommunication, has donated 4000 litres of petrol to the hospital. Madina Hospital which is one of the top leading hospitals in Mogadishu has played significant role in the society since the Somali public health system has been inactive for the past 20 years. “One of the day to day challenges Madina hospital faces is lack of power. The hospital operation is highly dependent on sufficient power, and without sufficient electricity the patient’s live is at risk” the hospitals administration told the media.

Madina Hospital which is one of the top leading hospitals in Mogadishu has played significant role in the society since the Somali public health system has been inactive for the past 20 years. “One of the day to day challenges Madina hospital faces is lack of power. The hospital operation is highly dependent on sufficient power, and without sufficient electricity the patient’s live is at risk” the hospitals administration told the media.

At the end of last year Hormuud Telecom has offered Madina hospital a generator with the power of 250kv sufficient to cover the day to day need of the entire hospital. Speaking at the occasion, Abdullahi Nor Isman, the president of Hormuud Telecom foundation, told the media that the donation of petrol will only keep the hospital active for a few days and he promised that the foundation will provide further support in the future.

Hormuud Telecom is always in touch with its public in times of drought and flood. It was recently when a garage in KM4 caught fire; without Hormuud Telecom’s firefighting vehicle, the situation could have gone far worse.
