Refugee Week 2019 – Abelarda’s story

Published 21st June 2019

“Without Doctors of the World’s support in the Mother and Child Centre in Yemen, we could have died! I was in my ninth month of pregnancy and I was bleeding. We had a similar case in our village before Doctors of the World came, where the pregnant girl had died, and I was so scared that the same thing might happen to me. I was admitted to the Mother and Child Centre and was advised to have a cesarean operation. Doctors of the World’s doctors and referral team transported me to a hospital where I had my operation and gave birth to my healthy baby. I was discharged after one week. May Allah reward Doctors of the World.”


With your support, Doctors of the World will make sure nobody suffers or dies due to lack of access to healthcare.
