Al-Sadaqa hospital in Aden is a lifeline to families displaced by the conflict in Yemen. Despite ongoing challenges like the procurement of medicines and vital hospital supplies, and recent civil unrest, hero health workers show up every day to keep babies alive.
Abdulkhaleq Abdullah is one such hero. He works as a physician’s assistant, providing health care for newborn babies at the hospital. “We receive so many displaced people in the hospital from many governorates. Most of them from Hodeidah. They are in a dire need for health care due to their poor living conditions, so we try to do our best to provide health care for mothers and babies here,” says Abdulkhaleq.
