Seynab attends her last ANC visit at Iskufilan MCH in Kismayo. SAF-UK midwife. Ardo Abdullahi is in charge of her case
28 May 2020– Seynab Abdulahi is preparing herself to welcome her third child. She is nine months pregnant and is anxious about bringing her child into a world ravaged by the COVID 19 pandemic and the rumors that she can transmit this deadly disease to her child during delivery.
This was her last ANC visit and she trudged slowly under the scorching sun to get to the SAF-UK health centre in Iskufilan village in Kismayo town. Seynab is one of the few pregnant women who, against the misconceptions and rumors on COVID 19 and advice on restriction of movement, has consistently sought routine services from the health facility.
