An outbreak of Acute Watery Diarrhoea/Cholera has affected more than thousands of people, mostly children, in Somalia since the start of the year. Communities forced to flee their homes by drought or conflict and living in makeshift. Karaban is a small village 38km north of Luuq town hosting more than 300 households and close to another 400 households settling its surroundings has witnessed hundreds of illness probably ling term illness caused by the frequent outbreak of cholera. The nearest place that the livestock herding community can seek medical help is not less 38 km to the north with no transport and the roads are rough and rutted. Additionally, the vehicle owners don’t like to come to this village because of the poor roads. The DIALOGUE project has inspired the community to organize a meeting to set their priority. Through the largest community gathering, the residents unanimously agreed to campaign for building a health post to access basic health services.”For a small tablet, we have to walk a long journey of days or more than 38km or rent a car costing more than 100 dollars a day.” Says community elder. The DIALOGUE project is a resource mobilization initiative by DRC that contributes 50% of the total cost of community and public project to create trust between Somali people and their government in the management of their own development. In this case, the community ultimately wants you to join and support them to build Karaban health post to get them relief and get medicine during disease breakout.
