The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has opened a second medical facility in Mogadishu, the battered capital city of war-ravaged Somalia. Seven temporary tents have been erected on the grounds of a bombed-out medical clinic where doctors and nurses will provide desperately needed health services while the clinic itself is being rebuilt.
One of the tents serves as a pharmacy. Others are used for registering patients, as waiting rooms and for consultations. The IRC is providing medical supplies, training and the salaries of staff working in the new facility.
