I send you greetings from Somaliland where we will also be celebrating the 7th anniversary of the opening of our hospital on the 9th of March.
During the seven years that we have been working, we have delivered nearly 9000 women and treated an additional 7500 other sick patients — proof that you can serve humanity even under the hard situations that we ofetn have to work through.
