The mobile medical team was able to provide timely care to Hamda and save her life.
Tens of thousands of people who have fled conflict zones from different regions of Yemen have found refuge in the camps for internally displaced people in the Marib region. Hamda's family counts that as well. Four years ago, they were displaced from the Sana'a region.
The family lives in a simple house in the Hudn area, one of the reception camps in Al Wadi district.
Hamda lives with her husband and their nine children. After the birth of her tenth child, she suffered from severe bleeding that put her life in danger. Fortunately, at the time she went into labor, the mobile medical team was nearby with a midwife: She was present at the birth and was able to save Hamda's life.
Numerous families in need of humanitarian aid
The region lacks everything needed to live. Only through the support of aid organizations can the families feed themselves. They live in an extremely difficult situation.
Hamda was in a state between joyful anticipation, panic and fear of the occurrence of complications or the need to go to a hospital during the last days of her exhausting and laborious pregnancy. However, due to the extreme poverty in which she and her family live, it was impossible to take her to a health facility to receive the medical care she needed.
When Hamda's tenth child made the journey to our world, the family's fears came true, as she experienced postnatal complications, including severe and abnormal bleeding that threatened her life. However, the presence of our partner organization's mobile medical team helped the family overcome this difficult time.
Midwife and mobile medical team quickly on the scene
The team was informed about the situation by Hamda's sister. The midwife immediately rushed to Hamda's home, examined her and took her blood pressure before providing the appropriate initial medical care for her condition. The midwife and the doctor from the mobile medical team managed to stop the bleeding. They administered the necessary medications to assist with fluid replacement. During the team's presence in the area, they continued to monitor her condition.
The team also examined the baby and gave tips to Hamda's sister, who helped the family care for the baby and mother, and handed her a mommy kit.
Although the family was going through a difficult time and a heartbreaking situation, team members noticed the amount of joy and happiness on the family members' faces and the satisfaction in their eyes. The mobile medical team performed a great deed for a simple, poor family in a neglected place in the desert who was on the verge of losing their only hope in life, their provider, their only good thing and true love in their lives.
